#DiscoverEU: EPP-Gruppen lancerer kampagne for gratis Interrail billet til alle der fylder 18

EPP Gruppen i Europa-Parlamentet har i dag lanceret en kampagne for at samle støtte til et initiativ der skal gør det muligt at give en gratis interrail billet for alle europæere på deres 18 års fødselsdag. Formålet er at styrke den europæiske identitet unge.

"Da jeg var en ung studerende rejste jeg for første gang til Storbritannien og Sicilien med en Interrail billet. Det var en fascinerende oplevelse. Jeg følte mig europæisk for første gang. Jeg ønsker, at alle europæiske unge også kan opleve dette. Det vil motivere dem til at opdage Europa for sig selv, få nye venner i udlandet og udvikle en ægte fornemmelse for, hvad dette kontinent repræsenterer, "siger Manfred Weber - formand for EPP-Gruppen.

"Vi pressede på for dette initiativ. Vi går frem skridt for skridt. Meddelelsen om Mobilitet initiativet fra ​​Europa-Kommissionen i dag sender allerede et meget positivt signal. For at holde momentum oppe, beder vi de europæiske borgere om hjælp ved at dele deres erfaringer med rejser i Europa under hashtaget #DiscoverEU og vi beder om at dette initiativ fremmes på de sociale netværk. Vi har brug for hjælp fra alle europæiske borgere for at dette kan blive en realitet "
