UNICA, the Network of Universities from the Capitals of Europe, recently published the UNICA Student Declaration. In the Declaration, students from UNICA universities call academic and policy leaders across Europe to unlock the full potential of Higher Education Institutions in achieving better societies, especially in the post-COVID 19 era. To succeed in this endeavour, UNICA students stress that universities must put efforts into becoming more inclusive, sustainable, community driven, and concerned with wellbeing.
