Velké množství syrských žadatelů o azyl přicházejících na pobřeží jižní Evropy vyvolalo diskuse a nekonečný proces rozhodování o byrokracii, zatímco země na hranicích Evropy stále čekají na komplexní reakci. Mezitím pokračující konflikty a války ukazují naléhavou potřebu realistických řešení, proveditelných a udržitelných plánů. Jak tento problém vnímá evropská mládež? Výsledky impozantního výzkumného projektu uskutečněného výlučně pro Youth Time.

Скопление огромного количества сирийских беженцев на берегах южной Европы вызвало дебаты и необходимость приема бесконечных бюрократических решений. Многие пограничные страны Евросоюза пребывают в состоянии неопределенности, ожидая новой европейской реформы. В то же время, ввиду непрекращающихся конфликтов и войн, миру требуются реалистичные действия, осуществимые и рациональные планы. Каково же мнение молодых европейцев о данных проблемах? Результаты впечатляющего исследования, проведенного специально для Youth Time.

Probably you have never heard of Alcalá de Henares, a rich and intimately-scaled center of culture that marked Spanish history. It is a magical place for its old charming streets and its storks flying over the roofs of the old town. The paradox is that Alcalá (as we all call it) is situated 25 minutes from Madrid, the capital of Spain, and that its University hosts a large number of foreign students each year, students who never forget the beauty of Alcalá’s streets and people.

Nowadays, many young Europeans are thinking about volunteering as a strategy for learning and for developing skills and competencies for a global job market which interfaces with the world at large. A fine example of a young person who is experiencing adventure while taking on serious responsibilities is Mathilde Barre Moreira, a wonderful newbie in the pace-setting system of volunteering in South Africa.

If you happen to go to Spain and wish to dedicate yourself to youth, students, and active citizenship, one of the most relevant areas where positive developments respecting youth are occurring is the Spanish Region of Galicia, a small but very beautiful part of Spain where people know where and how to focus and are receptive to development, from the rural areas to the Galician cities.

Have you heard of LEGOs? Yes, exactly, those little multicolored pieces which seem to be made only for children to play with and spend time building childish things. Correct, they seem to be meant only for kids - but it is not like that at all.

Young people and the actual job market demonstrate that there is a need to meet the dreams and the wishes of both sides; if you look at the topic deeper you will find that the perfect (or almost perfect) balance occurs when the employer’s needs and the candidate’s skills line up.

In recent decades the family has become the subject of investigation in numerous disciplines that highlight the strong impact of relations within the family on the educational development of the individual. The anthropological fact that underpins education is under the eyes of all: the human person is not, but becomes. To become herself/himself, the individual needs those who accompany her/him on this path, because the individual cannot make it alone. The first "other" that the child meets at the first moment, is then the parents, who are the link to the life which will become.

The voices of young people show that we are in a period of transition. We interviewed young people over an interval of three weeks and came away with a list of the top 10 fears that young adults expressed during the interviews. You can read them below and take time for reflection.

Researchers and historians agree that the symbol known as the “Trinacria” originated in the Middle East, where it was the triple image of the god Baal in three incarnations: spring, summer, winter. Only later, through a process lost in time, did the Trincaria become the very symbol of Sicily, an island of beautiful landscapes, abundant sunshine, and a distinctive triangular shape.
