'Young people attending events like this get acquainted with opinions of their peers from all over Europe and learn that European cooperation is built on dialogue and tolerance. Therefore, I support international discussions of young Europeans on current affairs, since one day, it will be these young people who will be making decisions on future developments in Europe.'

Petr Vokřál

Mayor of the City of Brno



'Our university city, abounding with youth, is honoured to be chosen to host this parliamentary session attended by students from all over Europe. I believe that with Brno’s genius loci based on being accommodating, tolerant and courageous about unconventional things, this site will provide the best environment for learning to think and constructively discuss issues of current constantly changing world to all attendees, while listening to one another. If students learn to reflect on basic values of our society, it will make their way towards a brighter future easier. And in my view, that is a big asset of their meeting in Brno.'
