Brooke Bacigal, Stavroula Kyriazis and Ashton Smith represent Ford School at Schuman Challenge organized by Delegation of the European Union to the United States
"In classes, we learn about historical and current solutions that other people have thought of and implemented, how they work and in some cases don't work, and we discuss them. The Schuman Challenge is unique because it presents a problem, then asks what you think should be done, then gives you the opportunity to present your ideas to the very people who you're reading about in your classes. I want to thank IPC and WDC so much for this incredible opportunity!"
"I would like to thank the International Policy Center for allowing Brooke, Stavroula, and myself to represent the Ford School at the Schuman Challenge. It gave us an opportunity to apply our skills to careful research of such an important problem that, personally, I was very unaware of prior to the Challenge. We learned a lot through our research and conversation with previous Ambassador Mel Levitsky and enjoyed presenting our proposal at the EU Delegation. We plan to do it again next year!"
