The German magazine for young people, by young people - Fresh articles on European politics, society, culture and much more.


United in Diversity. Along the Danube. In Europe.


Europe & Me’s mission is to "make Europe personal". Too many associate European news with dry politics and bureaucracy. We aim to change that. E&M is an online lifestyle magazine created by young Europeans for young Europeans. Since the publication of our first issue in July 2008, we have been writing about every possible "Europe" – the Europe of young master's students, the Europe of Chernobyl survivors, the Europe of the European Commission, the Europe of immigrants and the Europe of ex-pats.
