European Democrat Students took part in the European People’s Party Congress and met a number of high-profile politicians.
For the first time the entire Council of EDS was able to attend the EPP Congress, thanks to the efforts of Chairman Carlo Giacomo Angrisano Girauta and Secretary General Beppe Galea.
The participants had the opportunity to take part in all activities, hear all speeches and view the elections of the new EPP leadership. The accommodation, catering and all other hosting activities were also outstanding thanks to Hrvatska Akademska Zajednica (HAZ) and especially HAZ Vice-President and EDS Vice-Chairman Karlo Kolesar.
Furthermore, Carlo and Beppe also arranged meetings with a variety of politicians, including EPP Secretary General Antonio López-Istúriz, the First Vice-President of the EPP Mariya Gabriel, as well as Vice-Presidential candidates Helen McEntee, Petteri Orpo and Averof Neofytou.
EDS also had the opportunity to hand out copies of its flagship BullsEye magazine, which has a new design and a new Chief Editor – Mattia Caniglia.
Chairman Carlo Giacomo Angrisano Girauta said, “We were thrilled to be part of the EPP Congress and delighted to have given the entire EDS Council the opportunity to take part in this highly exclusive event, to meet high-profile politicians and to develop their skills, contacts and abilities.”
Secretary General Beppe Galea commented, “EDS has been honoured to attend the EPP Congress, to connect with senior political figures, and to learn more about the political processes at the very heart and at the very height of European politics.”
