The 4EU+ Alliance aims to cultivate a student-driven community across our 8 member universities: Charles University in Prague, Heidelberg University, Paris-Panthéon-Assas University, Sorbonne University in Paris, the University of Copenhagen, the University of Geneva, the University of Milan, and the University of Warsaw. We're thrilled to launch the 4EU+ Student Ambassadors programme, designed to:
foster student interaction,
boost student centred-communication,
and build a strong 4EU+ student community.
We aim to select 16 dedicated students—2 from each member university—to be the face and voice of 4EU+. You will help us intensify communication to raise awareness, encourage student engagement in specific 4EU+ activities, and contribute to a growing, interactive student community. This role offers a significant training opportunity, equipping you with skills and experiences that will be invaluable in your academic and professional journey.
You can play an important role in amplifying the mission and objectives of the 4EU+ Alliance. Through both formal and informal channels, you can advocate for active student participation in 4EU+ activities and opportunities, highlighting both the concrete benefits and the general value of being part of the 4EU+ community.
The way you carry your role as a 4EU+ Student Ambassador can be tailored to your skills, personal strengths and interests. Your activities and projects may include:
Creating digital content across multiple platforms —ranging from social media posts, videos or podcasts to complete communication campaigns—to bolster the Alliance's online visibility.
Organizing or participating in promotional events to raise awareness about the 4EU+ Alliance within various circles.
Collecting and disseminating testimonials or feedback from students involved in 4EU+ activities.

Representing the Alliance in academic settings, like lectures, and networking with student organizations and student unions.
Engaging in the 4EU+ Votes Europe campaign to help mobilize young voters for the upcoming European elections, emphasizing the importance of civic engagement.
