In January, Radio Romania produced a debate hosted by the European Parliament as part of the "You+EU 2024 & Beyond" project, won by the Romanian public broadcaster and co-funded by the European Parliament. Under this project, Radio Romania produces podcasts, video animations and infographics on European topics throughout the year. This was the second debate held at the European Parliament in English, focusing on what we can expect from the upcoming European election and how we convince young people to vote.
