International Essay Competition for Young People 'My country, our world in 2030'


Assuming that Europe's future will involve both an increasing need for integration and increasing levels of importance being ascribed to national, regional, confessional, and various other social identities, dialogue and exchange will be just as crucial for inner-European relations as they are for relationships between Europeans and non-Europeans. The 'My country, our world in 2030' essay competition, organised in the context of the May 2019 European elections, is an opportunity for students and young people to provide insights on how they see the future of both their country and Europe more broadly. Some of the leading questions are:

  1. How do you think your country will be governed and how will it be positioned in the European and global economic and political scene in 2030?
  2. What are the main developments that will characterise your country and Europe in the future?
  3. What do you think the words 'world', 'Europe', and 'country' will mean to you more than a decade from now?
