EUROPA - Rapid - Press Releases

Danuta Hübner is now member of the European Commission from Poland, but in the 1970's she was just a girl that had the possibility of leaving her country and go to the University of Sussex in England.

Now she's been back getting an honorary degree and speaking to its students. Her remarks on thge changes her Europe has seen and the tasks ahead are well worth reading.

The future of Europe depends on its ability to change - which is driven by the younger generation.

And she urges the students to "become beacons of entrepreneurial zeal but alo of tolerance and understanding."

"Travel, mix with strange people, become cosmopolitan... seek to understand even the strangest of your fellow human beings."
