Jarosław Wałęsa, Polish Member of the EP, hosted our visit to the Parliament. He explained us how the European Parliament works and chatted with the students and teachers about the latest news in the European Union. Jarosław Wałęsa congratulated them on their success in eTwinning, saying what his father used to tell him: ” If you believe in yourself, you can accomplish anything”.

To learn more about the Parliament and the history of the European Union, they visited the Parlamentarium. In the EP visitor’s centre, they could play with interactive devices, follow a timeline of the most important events that took place in the EU history, and even leave their wishes and thoughts on the future of the European project.
