Social media platforms and online tools are nowadays “the places to be”! We need you to make our voices heard and try to shape a better digital future!e of Europe.

Testimonials 

"... This has been one, if not the most, daring, complete, and enriching experience of my whole life. It may be because I'm still young, but it has definitively changed the way I see the things... and the way I see Europe. Before Message to Europeans, I saw Europe as a loved but distant friend; now, I have understood that Europe is my home and, above all, the house of the friends from all over the continent I met here. Thank you for everything!

Guillermo | SPAIN

"After 15 months of debating and sharing our ideas about the Future of Europe, the Message to Europeans 3.0 ended last February. Europe is facing today new challenges and we cannot forget that Europe has a self-defined responsibility for the minorities and for linguistic and cultural diversity. I believe this project was the right place to point it out with the future leaders of Europe."

Endre | HUNGARY

"Being in an environment where people aspire to create change, and where people motivate each other to start thinking outside of the box, is an amazing experience to go through. I am so thankful for this project for sparking an interest in me to create a brighter future for Europe, and to do so alongside amazing students. Discussing politics with the citizens and the politicians is exactly what is needed to find new ways of improving our surroundings..."
