The team organized on 22nd May, a workshop named "Tea at 4", inviting members from the parliament of youth, students, and youth representatives from the town of Handlová.

The program started with mentimentr: What does EU mean to you?

The discussion was about all things related to the European Union, and the upcoming elections. Maria talked about YDA project, as well as the campaign EU is YOU and the local campaign actions that were developed towards the goal of raising awareness on the first-time voters turn out for the elections.
