In only one week our second Young Professionals Seminar of this year starts in Nice: “How to tell the EU’s story”, a creative, intensive workshop with 20 outstanding young professionals from 10 European countries, representing a wide array of professional backgrounds, to create new formats and pieces about their view on Europe. This can be a written piece, a video, a drawing, a collage, a photo story or the like. It can also be a comparison of official studies about the view on Europe and the feeling of inhabitants of different countries with the personal feeling and view of the participants and their personal environment.

The aim of this workshop is to find out which views the participants have on Europe and which creative ideas they can develop on new content and formats to tell the EU’s story in a different way.

The Young Professionals Seminars (YPS) are the flagship of United Europe. Two or three times a year, we invite 20 to 25 outstanding young Europeans to a weekend seminar to discuss European topics of particular relevance to the next generation. On the page of the Young European Voices United Europe also publishes opinions and views of participants of our YPS. Please find more information here.
