The event

The local student parliament in Berlin will took place from 21-23 January 2016 at the Berlin House of Representatives (Abgeordnetenhaus).

Student committees focused on five topics related to 'the Future of the Human Being' (see below). After two days of committee work, including an expert hearing with local scientists, the students met in the debating chamber to debate and vote on their resolutions.

The students handed over their resolutions to Fr. Dr. Hiller, chair of the Committee on European and Federal Affairs and Media Policy at the Berlin House of Representatives.
