How is the work of EU parliament politicians? Find it out and try it also this year could students from high schools and universities that participated at the project of Model European Parliament. Successful students welcomed on 29 September 2008 in the President´s Palace again after a year the spouse of the Slovak president Mrs. Silvia Gašparovičová. „During these days you ´ve had the opportunity to discuss, argue and give notice about actual european themes such as safety of energy stock, EU-China-India relations, protection of environment, cultures´ variety and solution of immigration in Europe. All five themes are a part of slovak government and parliament agenda, as well as science and analytic institutions.“
Students also welcomed Mr. Ivan Gašparovič. They asked him about the role of national parliaments and the EU parliament but also about his interests. During discussion with the First Lady students also wanted to know more about the role of the First Lady in Slovakia.

During these days you could try out your speech abilities and knowledge in the real parliament.“ She also hopes the knowledge they got they will use in the future.
