The European Union and Austria

On the 26th of may the people of my country, Austria, will be going to the polls to elect the members of the next European Parliament. With us, many other people all over Europe will vote and in this way and we will change the future of the European Union. At the moment, we as Europeans are facing many challenges and difficulties. The Brexit (or whatever it’s gonna be?), the immigration issue and climate change problems are just the tip of the iceberg. All of these things could be solved, if the European Union would work together properly – but currently that’s not the case. Right wing and anti-European parties are taking the lead in more and more countries and […]

Na sétima edição do evento, a organização preocupou-se em conseguir “maior equilíbrio entre géneros” e em incentivar a participação dos mais novos. Aos 40 anos, a astrobióloga e comissária do Encontro Ciência 2019, Zita Martins, personifica aquilo que quis trazer para o evento: a participação de mais mulheres e mais jovens. “Tivemos o cuidado de ter um maior equilíbrio entre géneros”, disse a cientista aos jornalistas durante a apresentação da sétima edição do encontro que se realiza entre 8 e 10 de Julho, em Lisboa. Na agenda do encontro estão seis sessões plenárias protagonizadas por 12 oradores que trabalham em Portugal e no Reino Unido, o país convidado.

The European Elections

The European elections never really mobilised people. Since 1979, the rate of abstention is in freefall in France. However, at this time of political and environmental crisis, the next ones in May could represent high stakes for the future of everyone. Usually used by the French politicians as a sort of instrumentalization of the national politics, this year those elections should carry a more important meaning. The opposition of Macron’s politics would like to sell those elections as a referendum against the actual government in power in France. Beyond this national dissension, appears an actual dichotomy through the all European Union between those who still believe in a Union in agreement with the historical project started in 1945 and those […]

EU: the challenges of the future!

Nowadays the European Union must face many challenges which affects the image of this institution. Elections for the European Parliament are coming, which means this is the only occasion for the nearest 5 years for citizens of Europe to have an influence on the shape of the EU body structure, as European Parliament is the only one institution among the EU which is chosen through elections in EU countries. This is a very important institution, as it approves most of the legal acts and budget for European projects, at the same time it is the most transparent and open organization. Currently the EU faces a lot of problems, such as the migration crisis, Brexit, braking European values, social system, protection […]

Together we can do better!

In May, the call for European elections is opening and all European citizens are needed to express their desire to get involved in politics. These are not simple elections, this is an international event in which we are involved as protagonists because the future of the European Union depends on us. The EU is experiencing a moment of crisis due to the national political transformations that are happening, the international emergency related to the migratory fluxes that are occurring and the lack of common intents between the countries that constitute the monetary and economic Union. The number of populist parties that are rising in power in national contexts is increasing as a result of the boom in nationalism, economic autarky […]

Expressões que deviam ser proibidas

Copo com água? Literalmente? Norte-americano? Perca? Não. Não. Não. Por favor, não Toda a gente tem duas ou três palavras que não aprecia por aí além, porque as acha deselegantes, de mau tom e pior som. Eu tenho uma longa lista. Só de repente, lembro-me de requeiro, caberão, compito, compila e cômputo, cujo, blinda, brioche e broche, adição, vi-vos e fá-lo, eslovaca, xaputa e disputa, pariu e podido. Umas percebo porquê, outras nem por isso. Mas longe de mim querer bani-las. De que outra forma poderia dizer “Requeiro uma xaputa e um brioche”?, ou “Eu compito em disputa pelo primeiro lugar, mas caberão três pessoas no pódio”, ou “Fá-lo tu, que eu não tenho podido”? Há, no entanto, outras palavras […]

United EU, a project by Thomas More

To be honest, writing about the importance of the next election in the European Parliament is really tough. Even though I have always been interested in politics, if you do not do research on your own, you might not know a lot about EU-politics. For me the next elections are going to be quite important in the sense of which parties will allow what kind of national policy. In theory the word “Öxit” used to exist but has not been used since at least two years. Austria knows it would be nothing without the EU and since this knowledge arrived in peoples heads, even the right wing party FPÖ stopped using this topic for their populism. Since Madeira is what […]

EU: elections and the future

In a short time, it will be May 23-26, time for the next elections for the European Parliament. These elections are especially important, as they concern the future of Europe and its standing towards important subjects such as work, security, migration and climate change, some of the most discussed topics, be it in global or local politics. Topics which have a huge influence on our future and well-being in said future. These elections may also mark an important turning point, seeing as the European Union is trying, and often struggling, to fight against the apathy of its citizens and the strong populist tide many countries seem to find themselves in. The situation in my country, Germany, may be described as […]

Elections and the future of the EU

Europe is going through quite a difficult period; facing turbulent times and big important questions coming along forces the EU to think how it is going to shape its future. What kind of solutions it will it be able to make and how well will they work eventually. The European Union has survived before, so now it just needs to focus on solving problems in a innovative way and try to keep people trusting and believing on the work of Union. Europe has to be able to react quickly for the changing reality and to turn the challenges in to possibilities. This next citation is about the motto of the EU (”United in diversity”) and so, according to the European […]

Election time

The occasion for a young Italian man to discuss about European unity. In this exact historical moment Italy is facing some troubles on the road to European unity: year by year too many governments have risen to power, each of them ruled by different parties and political figures, sometimes with diametrically opposed ideas about how to deal with Europe and its politics. Now more than ever, it is essential to work towards unity; in a world where the powers become bigger and more centralized there’s no space for fishes that swim alone. Moreover the European dream is not anymore something unavailable and far from our reality, it is slowly happening in front of our eyes, and an initiative such as […]

European Union and the elections

This article is about the importance of the European Union and the next European election. Since I applied for my voluntary service on Madeira I realized how important European connections and projects are to get to learn new languages, cultures and moreover to develop further as a human being, such as a big community. Being part of the European Union makes me aware of many benefits we have because of this interconnectedness. Our possibility to go abroad has changed a lot in the last few years and it is getting easier with every year. As a result of the EU, we have more chances to take part in Erasmus projects or student exchanges than ever before. But being part of […]

Europe for me

Europe doesn’t mean only a couple of countries, it is more than that. Members of the European Parliament are elected every five years and this year in May will be the next election. As a transnational parliament with directly elected members, the European Parliament is unique in the world. The institution represents the interests of the EU citizen at an European level. The Parliament elects the President of the European Commission and appoints the Commissioners (as a college). There is more scepticism in the Netherlands about what Europe is and if it is necessary to be in the European Union. In general the Netherlands are positive about Europe but the well-known migration discussion is still a big deal for some […]

European elections and the future

This year my country celebrates 15 years of being a member of European Union. There were a lot of changes in Poland during that time – in my opinion mostly good ones. And thanks to it I could become an EVS volunteer in Madeira. Being a part of the European Union brought many advantages for young people who can now study or volunteer abroad. My parents didn’t have this opportunity and they are happy that I could go abroad thanks to the Erasmus+ program. In my opinion it’s very important for young people to get to know other cultures, learn languages, meet people from different countries, get experience in new areas. When they learn and get another point of view […]
