Its great to see loads of posts about My Europe Week appearing around the internet. I have yet to write mine, and I apologise for that! My excuse is that I finish my exams today, and then I will write it!

So earlier I posted a post from C’s Europa blog who wants europe to end as a Federal Europe

Continuing with non-English languages, Anne Albius of Denmark has written this post. It is an interesting post which looks around Europe now and the possibilities for the future.

Ralf Grahn, that prolific Euroblogger, has more posts for us! He looks at the Trivium and the secondary Quadrivium and Universitas of European Integration. He has also blogged in Finnish and Swedish.

Finally for now, Julien Frisch looks back at his experiences travelling by train.

Have you a story or idea to share? Dont forget to submit your post before Sunday!

First “My Europe” Posts

leave a comment »

“My Europe Week” has now officially started!

It’s the morning of the first day, and the first few posts come from Late Night Thoughts of Sarcastic Mind, who is very critical of the future EU; Ralf Grahn, whose first step is a careful consideration of the reasons the EU came into being; and the editorial team from Treffpunkt Europa (German – Google translation here) set out a bullet-point list of their ideas.

Both Ralf Grahn and Treffpunkt Europa promise further installments, and we look forward to reading those. Please – take the time to read and comment on other people’s blogs – this week is a conversation about the future of Europe.

Early Responses to My Europe

leave a comment »


With one week to go to the start My Europe Week. The idea has already started to get some comments on a number on other blogs. This is on top of our mention on this weeks, Week in Bloggingportal

Rolf Grahn has blogged about the idea in a number of languages. In Finnish he gives a round up of the blog posts surrounding the idea and one informing his readers of this blog and of course the all important twitter hashtags!

He has also posted about it in Swedish, here and here

Ralf also has a post in English!

Matthew has a blog post about the idea and how he sees it and how it could provide a “fascinating EU-wide snapshot of what people expect and want from the EU.” He also has a hard time in picking a subject to write on!

Martin has a blog post in German about the idea and in which he had the prototype of what became our logo!

We also got a link from Erkan’s Field Diary who tells me he will be taking part!

And finally Ugis Libietis of Latvia has a post on “United in Diversity” and why it isn’t always true in the EU.
