“Do you think that free circulation of people within the EU could put citizens in danger of uncontrolled terrorist threats?” – “Do EU leaders meet whenever a natural disaster or other crisis happen?” – “Why are the Members of the European Parliament” called MEPs?”
These are not questions from EU Studies graduates from a prestigious university. They are questions formulated in perfect English by 12-year-old kids from a public school in Treviso, Italy. Considering that at their age I couldn’t speak any other language and that I was more concerned with following A.C. Milan than politics, I was absolutely impressed to have this Skype exchange with these fantastic kids.
It made me way more confident in future generations than ever. This is the Europe I want.
