I am teacher Duma Cornel Lucian education counselor in Special School Caransebes and I was selected in the 8 finalist in AtmosphEuropa Contest . My speech from 4 november in Eurobama Contest in European Parliament from Brusseles was against discrimination of students with special needs , against poverty and climate challenge .
The AtmosphEUROPA contest for young minorities of any kind. The contest is open to anyone who is under 29 years old, comes from a minority background, lives in Europe and is active on climate protection, on diversity in society, or on poverty reduction. YOU WIN this Contest if you mobilize the most people who will vote for you and your ideas on climate, diversity , and poverty.
This project is under high patronage of President Hans-Gert Pöttering of the European Parliament
With the words of President Hans-Gert Pöttering of the European Parliament, "this interesting and innovative contest, where young Europeans from self-defined minority background will compete for the AtmosphEUROPA Prize and for the attention of the European public on three universal and inter-related subjects: climate protection, intercultural cooperation and poverty reduction, reflects the concerns of the European Parliament." (Letter of 25 March 2009 to the President of the ICLS): "With great pleasure I lend my patronage to this project" continued Mr Pöttering and recalled the European Parliament's commitment to diversity, minorities, equal opportunities and active citizenship, especially among young people. He also mentioned the relevance of the close link of this contest with the European elections.
For the same reasons, senior members of the main political groups, both left and right, of the European Parliament expressed their support for this contest. Their support shows that the contest is beyond party politics, it is mainstream European.
