#EuroCMvox

I’m a student in high school in Italy. With the help of the administration I was able to gather numerous students during an afternoon in order to discuss the Future of Europe.

Photos show students writing their ideas of change for Europe. Each one stood up and expressed 3 ideas of change. Goal was to communicate about progress but also to develop our rhetoric skills.

Be involved in a European project and discuss about change for our life were a first time for many students. In view of the success of the project, we will certainly do it again !

I organized a meeting with the younger generation in my old high school. In my opinion, young people are already more sensitive to social, digital and ecology matters than older one. It is easier to talk to this generation than other. Moreover they are the most concerned.

The 15 th of June, I have created an event where the priority and watchword was : EXCHANGE. Exchange about the Future in Europe in general. Students were aged of 18-19 y.o but from diverse origins : immigrants, wealth parents, middle classes, …

What I retained it is :

  • Future is really important for young generation, in particular ecological issues
  • They want to participate to the Future of Europe but they don’t know where to find info
  • They are really into participative democratic mechanisms as such referendum

During the month of June I have organized several meetings with people who following me in my social media. Those strangers became now friends !

During those meetings, we have discussed every-time about the 3 topics of #eurochangemaker : Digital, Green and Social. At the beginning people were shy to express their opinions, had fear to have differents views. But, as things progress, people were more confortable !

I will be thrilled to spread our thoughts during the 5th edition of EDYS – European Digital Youth Summit. 

Stay tuned

The 27th of May we organized the neighborhood day ! We gathered around 40 people this day in order to meet us but also discuss about the Future of Europe and the need that people feel in their day to day life.

At the end, we were people between 18 month old and 87 y.o from unemployed to banker or engineer ! Such a good afternoon !

What we can underline is the incomprehension and misleading about Europe.
Many thought Europe as unreachable, where their voices weren’t listened and without links with President/ Prime minister. In sum, disconnected.
But with this project and by talking to them. Minds are changing !

As a student at ULB but also at Science Po’ I was able to gather some of my team mate. A classroom was gracefully lend to us in order to discuss about the Future of Europe and in particular about the sustainability of cities.

Cities will face some challenges in the next years : air pollution, high temperature. We know that tree can regulate those problems. But other solutions exist : blue or white road, sun-visor, use material which do not conduct heat, … Our system must change. We were 14 people in the meeting but ideas were in effervescence !

We were all Erasmus student but we agreed on the urge to act.

Thanks to the FEDER fund which is a European fund aims to strengthen economic and social cohesion in the European Union by correcting imbalances between its region, the Beer Palace in Brussels was created.

 

 

The purpose of the project is to create a new cultural, commercial and tourist center around Belgian beer in the Stock Exchange building in Brussels.
I interviewed some of the clients, we can sum up the comments with those three quotes
– “It is not just a bar, Europe doesn’t finance bar ! Here, what is really  important is the idea to preserve and show our culture
– ” Beer in Brussels and in Belgium is sacred, it is monks people who grew the beer. Beer is a huge culture part of Brussels, people gather around it
– ” Here is an important place for two reason, first one is the location. We are located in the Old Stock Exchange monument. Second the theme, the Beer. Both  are really important in the history of Belgium and in the heart of Belgian citizen

I think the major problem in Europe is the migration management disparity. Some states as Italy, Germany, France… take the majority of migration flux and migration management.

One of the solution that could be put in place is to reinforce FRONTEX in order to regulate the flow and to dispatch more equally migrants. In addition, we can create neutral territory where all European country should be invested in the migration management flow.

In my opinion, one of the most challenge faces by Europe is the use of gasoline and diesel and the lack of alternative fuel.

Diesel and gasoline are polluting the Earth. People who are willing to change their ways to transport are stuck because of the lack of other energy stations as LGP or Electric.

One of the solution for EU is to, as charger for mobile, impose a unique electric charger for car to facilitate charging station. Moreover, Europe has to incite for LGP and electric stations because one of the biggest constraints of consumers is the lack of electric or LGP stations or different chargers sometimes across a same country.

To continue with #eurocmmysay, I would like to explore the #digital part.

In my opinion, one of the most challenge of Europe concerns the fake news. We have all seen fake news and disinformation with Covid pandemic and vaccination but fake news and disinformation concern all themes. In presidential and pandemic time across Europe, this could be dangerous and must be contained.

One of the solutions could be to create INFOX LAWS against platforms which divulge those fake informations but above all creators. Those people should be treated like offenders.

According to Eurostat, the youth unemployment rate (population aged between 15 and 24 years old) in the European Union has reached 14,9% in 2021, downed from 16.8% in 2020 and from 15.1% in 2019.

Countries with the highest youth unemployment rate in 2020 are Spain with 39,4%, then Greece with 34% and Lithuania with 30,9%. In the contrary, Iceland counts 8,9%, Switzerland has 6,9% and the first place goes to Germany with 5,5%.

This is clearly a challenge for European Union. Suggestions can be made in order to tackle this problem.

For example, I propose :
– Promote professional paths and experiences even in the general sections
– Help companies and institutions that hire young people without much experience and support them during professional experiences
– Add professional orientation courses throughout the school career
