Europe is one of the most diverse parts of the world. Looking back at a rich, tumultuous history, the high standards of today have been achieved by learning from past developments and conflicts. Europe has developed a responsibility towards its human and natural environment that needs not only to be preserved but strengthened in the minds of future generations.
If they do not understand our common past, we cannot pass on our high quality of life, rich culture and know how. Our duty is to raise students’ awareness and understanding of the importance of preserving Europe’s uniqueness and the challenges lying ahead. This englobes the preservation of history and the development of technologies that enable us to deal with our natural and social environment in a sustainable way.
