a short presentation

We are a group of nine Europeans from France, Germany and Poland. We decided to take part in the Young Europeans Award, a contest for Europeans under the age of 21, in order to present our vision of Europe and in order to answer the question “To be or not to be a European?”.


We worked on this project between July 2017 and March 2018. Firstly, we had to determine what we wanted to say. We decided to hold a survey on the opinion of many Europeans coming from different countries and various social environments. Additionally, we asked some people to explain their point of view in interviews. We also studied the history of Europe between antiquity and today.


On this blog, we present our results and what we can imagine for Europe’s future. We decided to make clear that there are many answers to the question “To be or not to be a European”. Indeed, there are various positive but also some negative aspects. Most of the people we asked are satisfied with being European but they also think that there are some elements we have to improve for the next generations.


Let’s enjoy !!!
