The European Commission is launching a video competition entitled “What does a united Europe mean to you?” for young people (aged 13-15) from the EU Member States as well as from the candidate countries and potential candidates in Southeast Europe.
National juries will select one entry from each country. The winners will be invited to Brussels, where they will have an opportunity to explore the city and the European institutions, and meet young people from all over Europe.
Entries may be submitted until 10 April 2015 through http://ec.europa.eu/enlargement/news_corner/video_competition/index_en.htm
The enlargement of the EU has broken down barriers in Europe, uniting the continent around the common goals and values of its people. At the beginning, the EU was created as a project of peace and stability for the European continent. These aims have in time convinced more and more countries to join the 6 founding members.
Now, the EU counts 28 Member States and its doors are open to other European countries that wish to join, and are committed to fostering peace, democracy, stability and prosperity. Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland (negotiations with Iceland have been put on hold following the decision of the Icelandic government), Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey are currently in the enlargement process.
