  1. Dear Sir or Madam,

    I hope you and your loved ones are doing well.

    I am writing this message because I am very passionate about the issue of migration here in Europe and I would love to attend the webinar: The EU Migration, Border Management and Asylum Reform. I have tried to register but I cannot seem to succeed. Could you please help me?

    Many thanks for your time.

    All the best,
