On Wednesday, 26 October 2022, MEP Irena Joveva (GS/RE) was invited by her colleague Valter Flego to address the participants of the LABINA: connecting Europe through art and tolerance event, where they talked about how culture serves European integration. Joveva pointed out that culture builds bridges – be it between people of different ages, religions or languages, or between countries themselves. Culture, she said, provides us with knowledge, tolerance, empathy, admiration and beauty.

With this in mind, the MEP would like to see more similar events taking place throughout the Balkans, as it is only through getting to know different cultures and cultural heritage that we can truly grow.

“Together we can improve lives and transform them for the better.”
