The freedom of movement has removed plenty of obstacles to exchange of information and research as well as promoted versatile study and employment opportunities in Europe. Why should one keep going on exchanges, and what other opportunities does the freedom of movement enable? Where are we currently heading right now – are we facing or fading new digital and physical frontiers?


Welcome to discuss the topic with the following panelists!

Riku Rantala, journalist, adventurer

Miapetra Kumpula-Natri, Member of the European Parliament

Laura Halenius, Senior Lead, Sitra

Maria Nyroos, EU Advocacy Specialist, National Union of University Students in Finland


The discussion event is hosted by  Tapio Hautamäki, the 2019 Chair of Aalto University Student Union’s Board
