Europe is too important to be left to the populists. That’s why it is crucial to have initiatives like FutureLab Europe, where we young Europeans can discuss our views and ideas for the future, exchange them with decision makers, and develop new concepts for intensifying the dialogue on, about and within Europe. If we want to move Europe from the footnote of our national debates to the top, it is time to take action now – because Europe is not only about Brussels, it’s about all of us!
