Democracy and European Citizenship: 14th and 15th January 2017

On the 14th and the 15th of February 2017, during a snowy weekend, the participants of the project “Pimp my Europe” met in Hattingen (Germany), in the DBG-Conference Centre, for exploring the topics of Democracy and European Citizens.
There were some old and many new faces!

The participants tried to find answers to those and other queries. Did they find them?

The history of Europe and of the European Union is more complicated than just a straight line. It is passing through many different events and it touches many different topics. As present and future European citizens, what is it important for the young generation?

The next step is for our heroes to make their voices. And how are they going to do that? Organising an event in the State Parliament of the North Rhine-Westphalia!
