Claudio Rocco on euronews: "I learn and grow each day"

<p>When I came to Lyon twenty years ago, right at the start of euronews, there was a bunch of us, newly-arrived colleagues, and the whole thing felt like a high school trip. </p> <p>We would go out together in the evenings and it was all very friendly. Over time, we’ve all built our own lives here in Lyon. But something important has lived on: the will to exchange ideas and experiences between journalists from different cultures, countries and languages. Back then, euronews only spoke five languages, now we speak 12!</p> <p>To give you an idea of what it means to live and work in a multilingual and multicultural atmosphere, just imagine the canteen, which echoes every day not only to the sound of EU languages but also Farsi, Arabic, Ukrainian… and I always try and sit next to a colleague who will tell me a story different to my own. Some of them, for example, have been through war and other very difficult life experiences. At euronews, I learn and grow each day.</p>
