From 22 to 26 October 2018, the starting signal for the project “Europe is us!” was given in the children’s and youth centre in Dresden’s Gorbitz district. At the launch event of the TUI Foundation’s project, young people had the opportunity to get in touch with their peers and exchange ideas about themselves, the Gorbitz district and Europe. These results were used to build bridges to European political topics, which gave the participants an understanding of the topic of Europe and the numerous cultures.
