Europe en Berry Touraine is a network of citizens from all countries of the EU and with the support of European programmes, constantly developing projects for young people and the economic and tourist development of towns.

Two young students from the Mikiel Anton Vassalli College, Josefa Muscat and Audrey Vella, had the opportunity to represent Malta during the 10th European meeting in Loches, France from 11 until 15 July.

Now both aspiring university students, Josefa and Audrey had been studying music performance at the Mikiel Anton Vassalli  College Malta School of Music for the past years under the tuition of Godfrey Mifsud, a teacher at the same school. "These are two of the many young people studying with us and who demonstrates the willingness and determination needed in order to succeed," said Odette Chetcuti, the School coordinator.

The two youngsters had the opportunity to network and share their views about Festivities in Malta with other 105 young Europeans from all over Europe.

This project, The Future, a present of the past, is based on the collaboration of a network of 26 partners that rallies citizens in all the countries of the EU. It inspires from a thought of André Malraux: "The future is a present made from the past."

Mikiel Anton Vassalli College principal, Victor Galea said that: "The aim of this project is to bring a better understanding of the work of peace that is the EU, which was bequeathed to us by the founding fathers, to measure its strength and to contribute to its perpetuation. We are glad that these two young people are participating and representing our country."

Galea explained that: "This opportunity for the two youths was made possible thanks to the Europe Direct Information Centre in Gozo who shared the information of such opportunities for young people with our College."

He also thanked Marlene Muscat who runs the Europe Direct Information Centres in Gozo.
