60 Years after the signing of the Rome Treaty, Europe is not a pretty sight. But what does the young generation make of all this, in what kind of Europe do they want to live and how do they want to achieve it?
From October 9 – 13, the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung European Union organised a capacity building for the post-Brexit generation under the motto “Why we’re stuck and how we want to get out of this”. 15 young Europeans discussed different aspects of the current challenges the EU is facing and developped concrete strategies for possible solutions.
