Europe is / not
A space to be able to realise my dreams
Many people with same values and the belief in human rights.
Something we should and can be proud of .
A country with a flag which I really like!
A mental construction in order to connect and unify a continent politically, economically, culturally and socially.
Diversity of cultures.
A place for many ethnic groups
A frame in which we are living and working.
We construct it every day anew .
An idea of unity based on economic and cultural aspects. It is a dynamic space which is constantly (re)constructed by us.
Europe is …
Something in some peoples mind.
A unique opportunity for mutual learning,
cooperation and long-term-thinking which is built on inner differences and diversity.
Europe is not serious, reflexive, self-critical.
It is a dream that makes us poetic and open-minded.
It is a reality of differences.
Europe shall not be
A union that is aggressive
Europe should not be …
Exclusive, hostile, aggressive, eurocentric, elitary.
We don't want a Europe of war and intolerance and homogeneity.
We don't want a Europe
of cultural hierarchies,
an economic and technocentric union without any sense of common values and visions.
Europe should not be Hegemonic, politically extreme correct.
It should not have a centre of power.
