What’s going on in Europe?

Dear European Friends!

The EU is facing tremendous challenges due to the current COVID-19-Pandemic. JEF Munich and the Europäische Akademie Bayern wanted to strengthen the European idea and maintain the European friendship even on a distance. Thus, we have produced a series of short interviews with other young Europeans, who tell us about the current political, social, and economic situation in their country, how people cope with it and if they even see a chance that something good will come out of this crisis. The Europäische Akademie Bayern has created a homeschooling edition of this series.

Thanks for watching and enjoy!
