Julie Ward, a Member of European Parliament (MEP) from the UK, said that being an artist all her life and a relatively late entrant to politics, more people from diverse backgrounds should join politics. Fellow MEP Arne Lietz, from Germany, spoke about extending initiatives like Fred at School in his country but warned that the state federal structure is quite complicated to manoeuvre.

Fred at School is an educational audience development project supported by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme and presented by Fred Film Radio to raise awareness of European films and culture among young people. This year, students with a mean age of 15, from schools in the UK, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Croatia, Romania and Iceland, participated. It is an inclusive project with films made accessible to visually and hearing-impaired audiences, and the films selected were age-appropriate and with subject matter relating to issues of European citizenship.
