On 20 January city2science was invited to represent the “European Student Parliaments” during a podium joined by State Secretary for Europe in NRW. Mayor Tim Kähler facilitated the discussion hosted by the Hanseatic League (“Wirtschaftsbund Hanse”) in Herford. The invitation was based on the successful European Student Parliaments, organized by city2science in 2014 and 2016. This project was one of the reasons Herford was awarded the title “European- friendly Community” by the Federal Ministry of North Rhine-Westphalia.
