also contributes to the acquisition of soft skills that will help them in their careers. Also, as it is conducted in English and French, it is a great opportunity for participants to
to practice and improve their language skills, while at the same time allowing the participation of international students and Erasmus students in Greece to enrich their experience from their stay in our country.

After the short "break" due to the pandemic, this year it returns dynamically, raising issues of great importance for the European Construction. Greek and foreign students will gather to discuss issues related to environmental policy, foreign policy, education, but also technological developments in Europe. Each Institution that is simulated has a separate discussion agenda and the participants are asked to choose between those topics that interest them the most and are in line with the objects of their studies.
