Young people give their views on Europe, European unity and what it means to be German.
In this extract from the series 'Into Europe', John O'Donoghue examines how as European countries move closer, their customs, beliefs and traditions are affected by each other.
O'Donoghue reports from a European Youth Centre at Liebenzell Castle in Southern Germany. At the centre young people from all over Europe come to learn about their own future and the future of their European neighbours from social, economic and poltical perspectives.
O'Donoghue meets some young teenagers and listens to their understanding and vision on the future of Europe. He also speaks to a group of university students from the University of Bonn, who discuss the past, present and future of Germany and Europe.
