Winkler Gyula, Member of the   European Parliament, spoke about the possible effects of the BREXIT, but not only.   He also allocated time to present the beneficial effects of the EU on the   life of youth (especially the mobilities offered by Erasmus Plus Program).   During the day, the volunteers of the Ér Hangja Association made interviews   with the members of the delegations, addressing the following question: “What   the EU means to you?”.
