The first vice-president of the European Parliament, Mr Gianni Pittella, and the vice-president of the European Economic and Social Committee, Ms Anna Maria Darmanin, who is responsible for the EESC's communication policy, will be visiting some European universities to meet young political science and communication students.

This initiative is part of the going local policy pursued by the European institutions, who are increasingly seeking to narrow the gap between the general public and "official" Europe.

The idea was triggered by the interest in young people shared by Mr Pittella and Ms Darmanin, and by their conviction that Europe must draw closer to the younger generations who can bring new vigour to the European venture.
