Jerzy Buzek, former President of the European Parliament

The European Youth Parliament offers young people a unique opportunity to voice their opinion on European issues, to take part in a pan-European debate and to strengthen their intercultural skills. (…) It is a pleasure to see that an organisation to which I granted my permanent patronage is carrying out such an important work so successfully, and I can only encourage you to pursue your activities in the same spirit!
