On March 14, 2017 MEUSAC hosted a group of Danish students who were in Malta on a study visit having as main theme “Malta in a Globalised World”.
Students were given a brief overview of the history of the European Union and Malta’s historical scenario vis-a-vis the Union while also being tasked to answer a number of questions in relation to the EU. MEUSAC’s role was also explained to the students:
• Engaging civil society in the EU decision-making process through the organisation of consultation and information sessions on draft EU legislation and policies.
• Offering technical assistance to local councils, NGOs and Government entities to tap into, and apply for, EU funds.
Visits by foreign students to MEUSAC have been taking place for a number of years.
Each student was given an information pack with MEUSAC’s latest publications, including MEUSAC News out with The Times of Malta, and other EU-related material such as a catalogue featuring funding opportunities.
