My Europe - Poland
My Europe / Mein Europa
'My Europe' is an interactive digital series of events that invites its guests to discover Europe.
How does it work? It's simple: We talk to young people from various countries about Europe and their personal topics of interest. The topics are as diverse as the speakers and can range from current political and social developments through culture and science to one's own commitment to greater tolerance or solidarity. In addition to the given topic, all participants can also vote live on other topics and ask questions on the evening itself.
On 22 November, Izabela Szymańska will take the audience on a virtual journey to Poland
Firstly, Izabela Szymańska is a student. She is doing her Masters degree in international relations at the University of Wrocław.
