MEP Nicodim Bulzesc launches Back to School visits

On 23 February 2009, Romanian Member of European Parliament (MEP), Nicodim Bulzesc, visited two schools in Timisoara, Romania. He is the first guest to take part in the Back to School activity as part of the Spring Day for Europe 2009 campaign. The purpose of the visits is to bring EU officials to schools to meet young people and discuss the latest EU developments with them and how decision-makers influence our daily lives.

MEP Bulzesc is a member of the Committee on Culture and Education and a substitute within the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety.

The two schools that welcomed MEP Bulzesc are Liceul teoretic "Milenium" and Liceul teoretic "Jean Louis Calderon" in Timisoara, known in the region as "Little Vienna", a city in the Banat region of western Romania.

Timisoara is the capital of Timis County with more than 300,000 inhabitants. It is a true multicultural city with many influential minorities, primarily Hungarian, German and Serbian, but also Italian, Arabic, Indian, Bulgarian, Roma people, Jewish and Greek.

Upon answering questions about the visits, MEP Bulzesc said:

"It has been a pleasure to take part in the Back to School activity under Spring Day for Europe 2009. I was pleased to meet young European citizens, who are the future of Europe, and discuss the role of the European Union and their concerns and plans for years to come. I hope my visits today have contributed to bringing decision-makers and young people closer together."

In the coming months, a large number of guests - mainly MEPs, EU Officials and local and national public figures - will continue to join the Back to School activity by visiting other schools in all Member States.
