“The interaction with people of common interests, the chance to put the theory to the test, the high level of debate on modern topics and ongoing crisis are some of the key elements of EUropa.S. In a world where we’ve hoped for the Europe of dreams and have settled with the Europe of reality, your acclimatization with the international affairs is the first step towards changing this fact. Passion, determination and no small amount of charm will do the trick under the idea that you can always better your best.”
