Create & Control 2016/2017
The idea to create the competition Create & Control came up already in 2016 after the results of student elections were released. The results showed that Slovak youth lacks critcal thinking and has no interest in public events. As many as 33 seats in the parliament would go to the populistic party and 31 seats would go to the extremist party. In that moment we realised that we are not indifferent to our country and steps need to be taken to make our peers care more about their own republic. That's the reason why we are here, to learn and educate ourselves mutually, to be the ones who have enough information to publicly speak about the pros and cons of their country.
We also gained support of the Member of the European Parliament Ivan Štefanec who as the first prize provided a visit to the European Parliament for the whole winning team.
