28 young people from four European countries met shortly before the European elections on board of “Lovis” and in the ports of Malmö, Szczecin and Rostock with politicians and young and old people from civil society, who enjoyed and cursed the joy and effort of sailing and who finally left the ship with a laughing and a crying eye – that was Beyond Borders. The focus was on women’s rights in Poland and the EU, on climate change and climate activism and the question of a European identity, both on water and on land.
The result is a short reportage from Juni Media/ MV1, which gives you an insight into our project and which you can have a look at here: Cast off! A big thank you to all who have filled this project with their ideas, time and strength!
On 26th May 2019 the European elections will take place!
What do young people expect from it? How do they envisage an open and sustainable Europe?
28 young people from Germany, Romania, Slovakia and Poland are sailing on board of “Lovis” along the German, Swedish and Polish Baltic Sea coasts at the beginning of May 2019 – looking for answers!
