Our Mission Statement
The European Union has gone a long way. Once initiated as an economic community to ensure peace on the continent, it has evolved and today lays the foundation for prosperity and progress for European citizens.
In the recent years, there has been much trash-talking directed to the EU. Every elections, every crisis, every Brexit talks, we heard all and everything thrown at the European project. The EU deserves better, fair criticisms on its shortcomings and contradictions.
WhyEurope wants to encourage an open and critical discussion about the state of the union and its objectives without questioning its overall existence (coz it’s here to stay 😉 ). We want to initiate a constructive debate about our life in Europe now and in the future.
For that, we strive to break down the (predominantly unknown) advantages of the European union for the individual so that each and everyone of us gets a concrete and comprehensive understanding of what it stands for, what it means for our every-day lives and what role we as citizens play in it.
