What is your experience in an enlarged European Union?

How can the enlarged European Union meet the challenges of the future?

"Our enlargement policy is a cornerstone of the European peace project. By helping our friends realize their European aspirations, we create shared stability and prosperity around our Union. I am sure that this writing competition will produce exciting and creative works and will inspire a new generation of young Europeans who will build our common home together in the future." – said Johannes Hahn, European Commissioner for European Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations.

The writing competition runs until 27 February 2015 (midday CET) and is open to young people aged 18-25 who are citizens of the 28 EU Member States.  They may write in any of the 24 official languages of the EU.

National juries will select one winner per country, who will be invited to Brussels on a three-day study visit. Their winning articles will also be published by the European Commission and be offered to Europe’s leading media for publication.
