Europe Live!: Students and politicians discuss the future of the EU

Brexit, Euro, nationalism – the EU is in crisis. It is all the more important, therefore, to discuss not only the challenges but also the positive aspects of European integration. The Europe Live! project regularly brings politicians and schoolchildren together to engage in dialogue on controversial and other issues relating to Europe. This March the dialogue was between Lower Saxony’s Minister President, Stephan Weil and a group of schoolchildren on two videos about Europe that they had made. He concluded, “The questions that the kids asked me make me feel very optimistic. They have shown interest, the ability to take criticism and a willingness to engage in Europe”.
