Sixth formers Alice Vaughan Williams and Louis Lovelace were representing Belgium at the event and Louis presented his speech in French, arguing for a single digital economy.

Alice then put forward a persuasive speech for changes to the proposals for a circular economy.

Students made their alliances with other member states during working groups before casting their final votes on the proposals.

The experience enabled students to understand the work of the EU member states and the European Commission and how languages can be used in work.
