“You are not just the first generation of digital natives, the most connected ones, the most educated generation in our history. You are also showing a great sense of responsibility towards the planet and towards people around you. Since the beginning of the pandemic, young people have truly led by example. And at Università Cattolica, you have put your skills at the service of others, and thanks to professors and staff who have always encouraged solidarity and volunteering. So I simply want to say: Thank you. Thank you for setting the example and for urging us to aim higher. The future of Europe is in good hands. Now I would like Europe to give something back to you. I believe Europe must work first and foremost for the next generation. Voglio un'Europa al servizio dei giovani”.
