The delegation of Leipzig International School qualified for the National Selection Conference of the European Youth Parliament in Hanover, which took place from 27 May to 1 June 2018.
LIS delegates and 120 other young Europeans discussed topics of international cooperation and development in Hanover. Each of the Participants contributed to the event; new friendships were closed, exciting ideas exchanged.
After a gruelling week of resolution writing, committee work, and speech writing, the delegation was ready for the two day General Assembly that took place at the ‘Niedersächsische Landtag’.
On Friday, the judges selected the winning delegation to represent Germany at the International Session in Rotterdam. It is with pride that we announce that the delegation from Leipzig International School won the right to be selected. It is with thanks and appreciation that we recognise the amazing academic achievement of each member of the delegation and Mr. Bell who accompanied, encouraged and coached the delegation. LIS students are very happy to take the next step and to represent Germany at the International Session in Rotterdam in autumn 2018.
