Europe is you and me and everything around us and inside us, its our life! This is a short movie that represents the life of an average person, with all of the ups and downs. We choose to tell the story from a different point of view, from a T-shirt's point of view! We expose the topic Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations with showing the stages of ageing and how it gets damaged over the years, with everyday life, sports, work, entertainment, etc. In the end nothing is lost, because it is just like in the nature - energy is never wasted, it is just transforming itself. One love!
The competition allowed us to formulate our ideas, hopes, critiques and dreams for Europe. We believe participation is the key to success for Europe. Today, many mechanisms are in place for citizens to get involved in European matters, but they are, according to our view, not that easy accessible to the larger public due to a lack of knowledge concerning Europe and EU institutions. With this view given, we wanted to introduce a Europe, in an ironical way, in which every citizen has his/her individual "commissioner" who allows him/her to have a strong voice in the decision-making process. In the end, there is a group discussion, creating a new democratic platform for all Europeans. Individuals come up with proposals, so the initiative comes from them. The results of those discussions should not be seen as directly binding upon the EU institutions. The EU should be able to integrate these results in one way or another into their decision-making processes.
