When I ask people my age or school kids or elderly people in Germany, “what is Europe doing for you and what are you doing for Europe?”, I see expressions of uncertainty and resentment most of the time. Programmes such as FutureLab Europe take the lead in getting Europe back to the people. The young people I met there are ingenious and have inspiring ideas. Furthermore, they are eager and dedicated to making Europe a place of diversity and prosperity beneficial to everyone. This young generation is aware of the issues and looking for solutions to be implemented in no time. Ultimately, they are an example of engaged citizens making the most out of democracy. They show us that everything is possible!
