25 May 2018: many have marked this date on their calendars. While some are simply waiting for the release of the highly anticipated new Star Wars movie, numerous IT and legal departments are instead preparing for the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to come into force. EU citizens are about to enter a new era, yet few are aware of it.

An education system that segregates children based on their ethnicity unfortunately still exists in the 21st century in the heart of Europe. Motivated by the cases of children who decide to fight and the children segregation in buses, which took place at the beginning of this school year (2017/2018), I feel responsible to discuss this issue. I want you to be aware of this problem and fight it!

Hungarians should brace themselves; elections are coming…On 8 April, general elections are taking place in Hungary. According to the polls, 45% of voters have indicated they still support the current PM and his ruling party. However, 46% have indicated they want a change in government. This high level of support for change is a new development in Hungarian politics. Corruption scandals, anti-EU policy measures and xenophobic rhetoric have made some voters turn away from Viktor Orban’s Fidesz party (Alliance for Young Democrats) and mobilised some of the passive ones the past few years. But despite the growing criticism, the governing party is still in the lead. How is this possible? Is there any hope for the opposition or is the game already over?

According to a new Ellen MacArthur Foundation report launched at the World Economic Forum, there is going to be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050. Plastic production has increasing all over the world: in 2014 alone 311 million tonnes of plastic was produced, which represents a twentyfold increase since 1964. (1) This includes the production of plastic packaging material, only 5% of which is recycled and retained in the economy according to the European Commission. The rest is lost after first-time use, costing the Union between and the European Commission has put this problem on the agenda.
