(25.10.2018) On Thursday 25 October we welcomed exceptionally two guest speakers at our traditional breakfast – Hervé Moritz and Astrid Lulling. Our members had the opportunity to discuss the importance of the participation of young people at elections with Hervé Moritz, President of the Young European Federalists in France. He presented the initiatives of his association and highlighted that the high participation of young people in associative life does not necessarily translate into political engagement.
At the end of the breakfast, we had the honour to welcome Astrid Lulling, former Member of the European Parliament, who devoted her life to European politics and who came to our association to present her autobiography “Mein Leben als Frau in der Politik”. She told some anecdotes about her political career and she shared her impression about the state of the process of European integration. Meeting these two personalities was a nice way to look at the same time at the past and at the future of the European project.
