Mediterranean Student Summit

The Mediterranean Student Summit is a new yearly initiative launched by the Erasmus Student Network International – ESN and UNIMED in 2022.

The main goal is to increase mutual awareness and understanding among students from the Mediterranean region and to support the development of competencies that help them to work together on societal challenges and to establish meaningful connections.

Our ambition is to give more space and to make students’ voices heard in the UNIMED General Assembly and to convey students’ recommendations to all stakeholders as a contribution for boosting the Higher Education sector in the Mediterranean.

After the pilot Edition held at the University of Barcelona premises, the Second Edition took place in September 2023 at Abdelmalek Essaadi University in Morocco, gathering 23 students from 10 UNIMED countries and welcoming for the first time students from Mauritania and representatives from All African Students Union – AASU.

The Mediterranean Student Summit is possible thanks to the financial contribution of UNIMED members and international stakeholders.

As for UNIMED General Assembly, the Mediterranean Student Summit has the vocation to be hosted by a UNIMED member.

The Mediterranean Student Summit 2024 will take place on September 26-28, 2024 hosted by the University of Palermo (Italy).
