Background

Some 300 highschool students from all over the Netherlands participated in this year's Concours Visions d'Europe (Competition Vision for Europe) on February 6th 2013.

The Dutch highschool students were asked to write on the theme :

" L'Union européenne vient de recevoir le prix Nobel de la paix. Dans l'Europe en paix, les jeunes ont-ils en 2013 la perspective d'une vie plus heureuse que celle de leurs parents et de leurs grands-parents? - Vous pouvez illustrer votre rédaction d'exemples pris, non seulement aux Pays-Bas, mais aussi dans d'autres pays de l'Union européenne."

English translation : The European Union received the Peace Nobel Price. In the pacified Europe, do young people in 2013 have a happier life than their parents or grand-parents ? - You can include examples in your short essay presentation, not only from the Netherlands, but also from other European countries.
