Young Bridge Builders for Europe
On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the SchulBrücke project, the 48 participants from this year’s cohort met with teachers and alumni at the Heidehof in Stuttgart, home of the Robert Bosch Stiftung. There, they took part in workshops on topics such as cohesion and sustainable agriculture, discussed various possibilities for the involvement of young people in Europe, and contemplated how the continent might look in the near future.
We asked some of the participants about what Europe means for them personally. Read the students’ answers in our photo gallery.
"For me, Europe is a community above all else. Although we may come from different countries and speak different languages, I believe that we are all the same, more or less. Our differences shouldn’t separate us. On the contrary, we actually need our differences."
Building a Stronger Europe
We want to help strengthen the democratic structure in Europe. In times where the idea of a unified Europe is facing great challenges, we are having a lively and necessary debate on the future of Europe that extends across national and societal borders.
