Testimony form aparticipant:
“Without doubt, it strengthens the European identity by reinforcing the sense of belonging to a union of common principles and values. This activity or exchange between different professionals from various member countries has made it possible to learn about professional practices followed in institutions of other member states. It also provided the possibility to get to know other people – European citizens – their culture, their way of life, their experiences, improving mutual understanding among European peoples. It was also an opportunity to travel and get to know Europe, our Europe. Undoubtedly, this activity strengthens the union between European citizens and the institutions of the various member countries, allowing institutional exchange to get to know the best practices used by other institutions, with enormous professional benefits both at a personal and institutional level”.
