Sarajevo (Fena) – The Directorate for European Integration organized the celebration of Europe Day at the International Center for Children and Youth Novo Sarajevo on Thursday under the slogan “United through Generations”.

The Director of the Directorate for European Integration, Elvira Habota, said that Europe Day is a reminder of a great and noble idea about the creation of an alliance of states known today as the European Union.

She noted that traditionally Europe Day and the entire European week are marked by various events, one of which is today’s gathering.

She added that the goal of today’s event was to unite the young generation with their new ideas, with enthusiasm and energy, together with the older generation, with their experience and wisdom.

– United through generations, united through solidarity and empathy, education and learning, we actually collectively contribute to creating a more inclusive society, which is also a European value – Habota listed.

She says that this day is of special importance for BiH, as this is the first Europe Day after receiving the “green light” to start negotiations with the EU.

– We felt it was very important to share this in this way, bearing in mind that we have here generations who have made their contribution, and we also have young generations who will make their contribution in further building society, which is the goal of all of us in the values of democracy, tolerance, solidarity and all other common values – Habota concluded.
