Mission Europe IV is a Youth Democracy Project that brings young people, aged 16 to 19, from Belgium, Germany and Poland together during three weekends to participate in debates, discussions, workshops and sightseeing tours concerning mainly the two World Wars, the Cold War and the EU. Mission Europe IV aims to immerse young people in the consequences of the history and to develop a mutual understanding between youngsters in the spirit of European identity, solidarity, tolerance and cultural diversity as a key to a ‘united in diversity’ Europe. Mission Europe IV hopes to contribute to the formation of a socially-adept, open-minded, and globally-aware future generation. The project aims to display the feeling of a culturally rich and differentiated, yet united Europe with similar overarching values; especially among countries that once fought each other but now cooperate closely.
