Faithful readers of this blog will recall that the European Economic and Social Committee recently awarded the prizes in its annual video challenge (see my post here). This afternoon Vice-President Anna Maria Darmanin, who has particular responsibility for communication matters, presented the winners to the Committee’s plenary session. It was good to see the three winners again on a larger screen and all won enthusiastic rounds of applause. As the Vice-President explained, what was most encouraging about the entries was their basically positive message about Europe and the European Union. At the previous day’s Bureau meeting Anna Maria introduced a new presentational video about the Committee. You can see it here. Thanks in no small part to the efforts of members like Anna Maria, the Committee becomes ever younger and more dynamic, it seems to me.
