3. What does Europe mean to you?
Europe for me represents a center of ideology and a threshold for common and controlled power.

4. In 2024, I think it is important to vote in the European elections because:
It’s a duty and responsibility for the people in order to take hold of their futures especially when we live (such as all times were) in a rapidly changing climate both politically and environmentally.

Although Malta is a country in rapid globalizing change, I think that what makes it unique are the stories of its people, and their simplicity through their lifestyle
