Europe’s future discussed at RANEPA Summer Campus (VIDEO)
On July 18, Paul Revay, a member of the Board of Trustees of Friends of Europe, told the International Summer Campus participants about Europe’s experience and its future in the context of the European Parliament.
Paul Revay spoke about the difficulties previously faced by the European Parliament, and how traditional parties and “anti-European” parties worked. The speaker mentioned the problems in Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, which find it difficult to establish themselves as strong players on the world stage. Finally, the expert spoke about climate and the environment, which are equally important concerns for those countries.
Paul Revay shared with the students the problems Europe is facing today. It is important that Europe remains a leader in the production of technologies, the expert believes, since the role of the euro in the world largely depends on this. He also noted the difficulties arising from Europe’s geographical position, as it makes it difficult to create a common unity.
The meeting raised the participants’ awareness of the current situation in Europe and its relations with its allies. After the lecture, the participants asked Paul Revay questions and discussed the current situation in Spain, the development of Asia, the upcoming elections in France and the difficulties associated with Ukraine. The speaker wished the students to study hard and achieve what they want in life. According to Paul Revay, if they know what they want and never stop trying, they will be able to achieve excellent results.
