Travelling through Europe
BY MARC MAHFOUD
@ VOL 32
ON FEB 06, 2017
As an artist, Marc Mahfoud enjoys the European freedom of expression and movement. In his case, this meant realising his dream of leaving his money home and starting to travel through Europe with a guitar only, crossing borders and visiting three countries in one day. He experienced it as a unique privilege.
However the rising lack of tolerance and understanding is endangering this freedom. When he was robbed twice during his travels everything he stood for got tested.
He would like to encourage us to better appreciate and preserve the freedom that we have in Europe, and to actively participate in the dialogue of open borders and tolerance.
He challenges us to dare to discover! When you travel by foot you get in touch with a wide spectrum of people, you learn to appreciate your life and to respect others.
#FreeInterrail: Saving Europe by travelling

Imagine yourself turning 18 and finding a personalised letter from the European Union in your mailbox. In it: a voucher to travel Europe. Your life will change! Europe is facing many problems - a lot of them have to do with people not knowing or understanding each other.
Imagine what a Europe we could build together, if all future generations were enabled to explore and experience European cultural diversity and beauty first-hand. #FreeInterrail advocates for just that.
In this presentation Vincent-Immanuel Herr invites us to join the movement and make sure that all EU youth are empowered to become Europeans out of experience.
Have a safe flight!

We fly more often than before but seldom think about the people who actually make it possible for us, besides the pilots and stewardesses. Air traffic controllers are behind the scenes; their role is crucial for our family visits, business trips or dream holidays.
Csilla Szabó started working with air traffic controllers over a year ago and is fascinated by their work. In this presentation, she takes us into the world of air traffic controllers and tells us what she has learned from them.
