The main goal of the event was to deepen the knowledge about the European Union, the European Parliament elections and the cultural heritage of Veszprém, as well as to examine the role of culture in European integration. A special guest also helped to achieve the above goals: Tibor Navracsics, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, also took part in the event, so that young people could get first-hand answers to their questions about how the EU works. An important topic of the meeting was also the relationship between local and European identity.
During the event the project participants visited an open air art installation, Think Freedom. The travelling installation symbolizes a free group of birds. It connects young people from all over the world through art creation, and collects their messages about freedom and peace. In Veszprém it also paid tribute to the 30th anniversary of the democratic change of regime. The Gisella Days public cultural event provided a great opportunity to involve citizens in the project and increase their knowledge about the EU.
