All the evidence were judged by the Romanian Association for Debate, Oratory and Rhetoric, to whom we thank for cooperation.

We would like to congratulate all the teams for participation, but especially the 3 winning teams from Romania and 3 from Greece who qualified for the next stage, which consists of attending an intensive seminar that will be held in Brussels from April 8th  to 14th 2019. The winning teams are: from Romania – The Balkan Girls (Monica Andonie- Bindar and Teodora Irina Comanita), l’EUnion fait la force (Alexandru Dănescu and Marta Datcu), RIGHT NOW FOR THE EU (Ioan Suhov and Victor Morozov), and from Greece – Mary Squared (Maria Dialinaki and Maria Kroustallidi), Team Europe (Panagiotis Kollaros and Dimitra Axarli) and Freedom Writers (Minas Stravopodi and Johnny Janary).

The training that started on Monday, April 8th is organized by the Romanian Center for European Policies, SNSPA (through the Center for European Studies) and Inter Alia, and will include experiential learning sessions using non-formal methods on topics such as: the functioning of the EU, methods of democratic participation of European citizens, the activity of the European Parliament and the main topics of the election campaign for May 2019. During the workshops, participants will have the opportunity to reflect on the possibility of a new "narrative about Europe", in a tense European context marked by Brexit, populism and the lack of involvement of young people in the European elections. On behalf of SNSPA, one of the trainers of this seminar will be Dr. Miruna Butnaru-Troncotă, the coordinator of the Center for European Studies, affiliated with the Department of International Relations and European Integration. Following the training sessions, participants will have the opportunity to visit various European NGOs or think tanks, as well as European institutions, such as the European Parliament, the Committee of the Regions and the European Economic and Social Committee. The key moment of the training will take place on Friday, April 12, 2019, and will consist of a public debate, organized in cooperation with the House of European History Museum, entitled "The Dangers of a Single Storyon Europe. Youth Perspectives", in which stories about Europe's unification will be shared. This event aims to bring into attention of the public the aspect of the different versions of Europe and the implications of promoting a single version of Europe in the context of debates on the future of Europe. The discussion will be facilitated by Dr. Simina Bădică (House of European History, Brussels) and Dr. Miruna Butnaru-Troncota (SNSPA). More about this event here.
