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 […]

France and the european elections

About the European project and the next elections, France is quite divided, such as numerous countries in the Union. Firstly, about the elections for the European Parliament, France is not really involved, the people don’t really care about this election, this one of the elections with the highest rate of people who don’t vote. And this is for many reasons, first because Brussels and the Parliament always seem to be far away from the National needs. There is also a big lack of trust in the European institution. Like in almost all the European countries people are afraid to lose political power and ability to take some decision in profit of the European Parliament. But this election is still important, […]

May 2019 and the future of the EU!

The European elections in May 2019 will have a direct impact on our life. The European Parliament is the only supranational, democratically elected parliament in the world. All adult EU citizens will have an opportunity to select who will represent them and how Europe will act in the coming years. The European Union currently consists of 28 member states and is largely viewed as a cornerstone of European stability and prosperity, however, many EU countries have faced considerable economic difficulties. The EU has had to deal with a series of crises in these last few years: the Brexit negotiations, the trade dispute with the United States, the growth of right-wing populist movements, a democracy and rule-of-law concerns in Poland (since […]

Britain, the EU and the future!

To summarise the intricacies and complexities of European Union is no mean feat, especially to do so in roughly 200 words. The European Union is facing its most difficult challenge to date as people in the member states are increasingly becoming apathetic or down right adversarial towards the EU. With the situation of Brexit being a predominant political problem, that will be felt by most people throughout the continent and to the rest of the world, the EU will have to weather this storm if it is to maintain the integrity and diplomatic relations with the rest of the union member states. The EU needs to be strong when confronting Britain as they have to show other countries that leaving […]

The European Union in my country

The next Elections to the European Parliament are held from the 23rd till the 26th of May 2019. At the moment 751 Members of the European Parliament represent the 28 member states with more than 512 million people. Because of the Brexit, the European Parliament voted in February 2018 to decrease the number to 705 members. With the exit of Great Britain the European Union faced some problems. At the beginning a lot of other countries thought about to follow Britain and also leave the EU. The parliament showed a lot of challenges the Brexit brings and because of that they could avoid it. Although there was a petition for a referendum my home country always was commonly for staying […]

A Europe of Traditions

The Traditions of Christmas, Carnival, and Easter in Germany. In my home country, Christmas time starts with the 1st of December, children receive “Adventskalender”, a calendar made mostly out of chocolates, which are used as a count down until Christmas Eve. This period is called the time of advent, from Latin adventus meaning arrival. Each Sunday during these four weeks is especially important, as, on these Sundays of Advent, we are lighting up one candle after another on our Advent wreath, until at the end, there are 4 candles lit: the sign that Christmas has come. On the 6th of December, we celebrate Saint Nicolaus day, in the night from the 5th to the 6th, children put out their boots […]

Karl der Große

Karl der Große – Carolus Magnus/Charlemagne. Born into the second ruler house of what is nowadays known as France, Charlemagne has proclaimed the French king in 768. His importance as a German monarch began with the Saxon Wars (772-804) when he invaded Saxony with the intent to conquer, a goal he finally reached after 32 years of brutal and bloody battles. One of his main motivations was to get present-day Germany to unify Europe under the Christian cross, which is why he was and always will be known as the Father of Europe. The height of his power was in the year 800 when he was proclaimed Emperor by Pope Leo II. His crowning turned him into “Augustus Imperator Renovatio […]

Wewelsburg Castle

They tried to burn the whole castle down, luckily without success. The most famous monument, in the region I live in, is the Wewelsburg Castle. It is a huge triangular Castle/fortress, whose history started in 1123, as a small, soon to be destroyed, city Wall like building. From 1301 until the 19th century, the Castle belonged to noblemen, bishops and the Prussian state and was more or less unknown to the overall population of Germany. This vastly changed in the 20th century during the time of the Second World War. Heinrich Himmler, the head of the SS (an elite police force of the Nazi regime), chose the Wewelsburg Castle as its headquarters, with the plan to turn it into the […]

Reforestation Activity

 Reforestation Activity shared with you by our European volunteers! Gratifying experience On the first of December 2018, several volunteers took part in a reforestation project in our local Parque Ecológico. In the beginning, we were given a short introduction and learned of the variety and numerous species residing in the ecological park. Moreover, we learned of the devastating wildfires, which were the reason for our activity. Shortly afterwards, we were allowed to start planting young trees under the supervision of an experienced park ranger. This planting task was very enjoyable, as we were able to combine enjoying a beautiful scenery with the fulfilling sense of being able to take part in something long-lasting and ecologically important. Especially nowadays, as we […]
