NEWS OF THE DAY
Stojceska, Arsovska and Stojkoski at CIVIL’s panel: The young people have European values, they must not give up on changes
“I had the opportunity to study in Slovenia and I had the opportunity to learn much more about European values. When at the age of 18 I went to Slovenia, I had difficulties adapting. I followed the changes that were taking place during the Colorful Revolution from there. Regarding the digitalization, we have the opportunity to grow. There is no excuse that something cannot change and to give up. We cannot say “this is going fail”, we have to fight for a healthier environment and better opportunities”, said Biljana Arsovska at CIVIL’s public event on the topic “The youth and European Values”.
