The Europe of masterpieces
Help us to develop a project on Europe in a your thinking …
One word, a drawing, or a witty slogan, or a picture, or an aphorism, or an image. Give us your idea, to paint with us a large and varied fresco that tales like achieve a Europe of Masterpieces, a journey into Europe of young companies, a fresco whose business models are proposed anchors from each country!
With your help we will begin to create together the project "Europe of Masterpieces. a journey, a discovery ", encouraging the active participation of young Europeans for creating a document as the" Charter on a new model of governance.
Create a Europe responsive and inclusive economy means creating masterpieces. The current model of economic development, where economic growth does not necessarily mean more jobs, poses some problems: first of all to ensure a decent life for persons excluded from the labour market and to involve them in society.
The potential that stems from the cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic diversity more exploited as a source of innovation and generational goes as the basis to define a new model of Governance.
What we need today is not a Europe of strong but a Europe of peoples and of autonomy because our job is to give voice to issues that directly affect citizens, such as unemployment, immigration and social inequalities. Only in this way we will have a Europe that carries out the efficiency, affordability, effectiveness and that pursues exclusively reasons of public interest, in compliance with the principles of impartiality and good performance of administrative action. Therefore a Europe of macro-regions and not just of the Nations.
It is important to bear in mind that we are witnessing a shift from government to governance: while the government assumed a responsibility clearly bounded and visibly concentrated in the hands of governmental and legislative officers room, capable of making binding decisions, governance rests on alliances between different actors who cross the divide between public and private actors , State and civil society, or national and international actors. In this context also the citizens become liable, with the Government's role is reduced to a work of encouragement of citizens to focus on individual responsibility rather than their claim and alleged by the Government to be responsible for their account.
Take the initiative! (Take the initiative!)
Bridging the gap between European Community institutional triangle and individual citizens cannot only be the responsibility of the Member States and their governance that must strive to bridge the gap. We need a responsible commitment and increased awareness of its shares by the individual within each local community of belonging to begin from next April 2014, the month in which you will "participate" in elections to the European Parliament. I mean first of all, strengthening integrity, transparency, citizen engagement in improving their community and the local community living, therefore there will be a Europe closer and fit in with everyone.
The youth is the future, the future is in the hands of young people. Let make the world better, for us and for our ancestors. Why it is good to be a lawyer of ourselves before the eternity, where is our home.
In a world of Eurosceptics on Sunday, I think no more of our European anthem unattainable masterpiece!

Create today your future
Nowadays young people experience wonderful things: have more freedom, travel, are educated, living in a multicultural world and can broaden their minds through it, see the rise of technologies and live fast. But along with the freedom, they get more responsibility. They can influence their own future and to participate actively in its construction. It's a truly wonderful thing that can make the world better and more suitable for the needs of people. "Create for good, living for themselves and for each other, see the possibilities instead of obstacles,"-these organizations, Governments and institutions need to show and explain to young people. How can we do it? There are a lot of options, a lot of projects, ideas and thoughts-here we can practice our imagination! Let's get started!
Always, especially in times of crisis, Europe needs project like this to not lose his soul
Do something together for breaks down the walls of misunderstanding
Do something together to raise the bridge connection.
Do something together to synthesize the tradition of parents and the new culture.
Do something together incorporate traits of different cultures.
Today's Europe is only the appetizer of what will be tomorrow's Europe. Today young people across the continent are in constant motion, to exchange ideas, looks, words, experiences and skills. Cheap flights, mobility programmes such as Erasmus, Leonardo, youth in action, EVS, etc. have shortened the geographical and cultural distances.
Today "being European" is becoming something concrete. Establish itself as a European citizen means to think about their national identity.
Today after seeing so many European countries, I can say I understand what it means to be Italian. The constant comparison with other realities can help each of us to find the true meaning of being a CITIZEN with a clear identity.
This is the masterpiece of which we can all be builders: create by comparing an inclusive Europe, integrated, color, multicultural.
We support with force this project with an important initiative to allow a responsible social Europe, involving all its citizens and Nations. As regards Portugal, this could be very helpful in increasing awareness in situations of discrimination, leading at the same time, closer to the EU and what should be the European values.
Look for the unknown will bring us closer and understand each other.
One of our European masterpieces is the possibility of having a new ' open access ' for information.
We believe that citizens must be able to express themselves in the context of the places where they live and relate to people. We called this approach "Spatial Citizenship".
The idea comes from the fact that the use of geographic information technologies and is supported from the perspective of our daily lives. The basis for participation in the collective decision is the way we relate to the space around us.
Participatory approaches and community and the publication of information of the data collected in the field are already in widespread use, for example through social media. The development of this type of commitment in training allows teachers and students to become aware of the power of spatial thinking, geographic information and the use of the web as a communication tool and participatory.
The world and the place seems to be nice if you fit our desires.
Europe is rich in different skills, different cultures, different languages, different ages, different ways of thinking and imagining the world's future. Bridging these differences will allow us to transform into a powerful force that will empower our youth.
The knowledge allows a better understanding of the new environment and culture and at the same time a better acceptance of diversity. We equip people with education to raise awareness of fundamental rights. We open new avenues to knowledge!
