16: A Young Look at Europe

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Foreign Policy
english language

After years of rivalry and war, Europe has found a common way to peace, wealth and the rule of law. The crisis of recent years, however, has fomented new fears and conflicts, raised doubts about the very concept of “European Union”, and led to calls for a dismantling of tasks and competences.

This is about the future of young Europeans. What task has Europe been set by its young citizens? And how can Europe’s political aims be made more comprehensible? What can we do to ensure that Europe is not just seen as a continent with a great past, but instead much more as a continent with a great future?
