Our Europe

Our Europe shows you what Europe looks like seen from the perspective of two European reporters and through the eyes of the young Europeans. We are Peter Laugesen and Elena Maria Askløf, two dedicated travellers, a writer and a filmmaker, and since 2013 we have undertaken several extensive European journeys to find answers to important questions. Who are the young Europeans? How can we make change? What’s going on with migration, the economic crisis, Brexit, far right populism, democracy and the relation to Russia?

We want to empower and give a voice to the new generation of young Europeans that we belong to ourselves.

In 2014 we were awarded Charlemagne Youth Prize, a prize given by the European Parliament to the best youth project in Europe.

From the 1st of November 2018 and until the 1st of March 2019 we are travelling Europe again and you can follow the journey on our blog.

In Our Europe we travel on extensive European interview and research journeys, and we do lectures, films, articles, podcasts, educational presentations, consulting and participate in debates and conferences.

We invite you to get in touch if you are interested in a presentation from us, if you have advice or want to collaborate. We are ready with new lectures from the 1st of March 2019.
