Could you solve the EU's biggest challenges in just 12 words? 

A short story competition where participants share their vision, views and ideas for the future of Europe using only 12 words.

In October 2016 we ran a short story competition asking for people to do just that and the response was overwhelming! With over 300 entries on social media, participants addressed issues like freedom of movement and security, youth unemployment, climate change, education and more.

The best entries received a €100 Amazon voucher and the overall winner, as voted for by the public, received a trip for two to Brussels!
