Hello. It's the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. This event changed the face of Europe. To celebrate this, the Parliament invited 89 young people from all over Europe. Why? To see how twenty year olds see Europe today. The live public debate was televised. Your 20th birthday is a good moment. We started many things in the EU. We had an election and, we have a new treaty to improve organisation." The key question: what does Europe mean to me? The young guests replied: Europe means a lot of things. This was one of the reasons why I was able to come here. If I had no interest, I wouldn't have been invited. Short films show the development of Europe, from the Second World War to the 27 member European Union. Speeches were given to keep history alive. Some young people liked the ceremony, but others felt out of place at the event. Well, it's their duty to talk. We all have to explain our views. And it's their right to say something about what they're doing. The ceremony gave way to criticisms of the European Union. Young people gave their views on the EU. Their verdict: Europe should do better on the environment, health and jobs. Goodbye!
