< SWITCH ME >

We like Europe. We like each other. Out of those two facts this magazine was born.

It's really hard to define what Europe really is: a continent, but with no clear border in the East; an area with a common history which is understood in a thousand different ways; a unity which consists of about 50 countries and more than 700 million people speaking 100 languages.

That's why we keep our definition simple and snappy: Europe is a state of mind.

We have very serious goals. We want to support the emergence of a young European public. We want to contribute to a new perception of the European community - beyond the category of a nation state. And last but not least, we want to have fun! We don't particularly fancy the boring world of Brussels, we'd rather have the colourful and kitsch world of Eurovision Song Contest. But both of these are us.

Europe is us!

sam

Sam Volpe – Diaphragm/Project Manager of E&M
is into this because he likes correcting other people's mistakes a little too much and hates parochialism. Originally from Newcastle, north-east England, he has received the most compliments for sending emails at inappropriate times of the morning, could live without online comment sections, drinks too much while working for E&M, and studied English Literature. If you meet him, politely ignore his terrible balance.
