One of the things I love about digital media is their capacity to bridge geographical divides, establishing new connections between people who would be unlikely to cross paths in the offline world.
So I was delighted to be able to offer my students here at the University of Washington in Seattle an opportunity to put questions directly to Members of the European Parliament.
Europe Day has been marked with a series of events this week at the University of Washington in Seattle. Colleagues from the EU Center at the University organized a European quiz that attracted morning crowds crossing the central “Red Square” on campus, lured by the promise of free coffee and EU giveaways! And I was honoured to be invited to deliver this year’s Europe Day lecture to a group of students, faculty and representatives of the local community.
