We spent a week with European youth just like us, debating important issues that affect the EU and us everyday. Over the course of a week, we learned how to draft legislation, reach consensus on difficult issues, how to debate, how to speak in public and how to understand the other side of an argument despite feeling very strongly for your side.

I enjoy my walk into school each morning. It is the best time of day for me to collect my thoughts and breathe in the fresh air. As a treat, when I get closer to the school, I set my eyes on the colorful and ever changing window displays of Gunnarsons Specialkonditori and Skrapan boutique in Södermalm. Delicious breads, pastries and cakes of the season are promoted at this timeless konditori, while the other has a very fashion forward window display that subtlety integrates local and global awareness on events or issues.
