Idea pitch

Most of the Europeans only speak a few European languages. We can't read their newspapers and we can't see what kind of information they get. We want to change that.

Why does Europe need your idea?

Europe needs to understand itself better. Europe is not just our own home countries, it's every country in Europe. We try to understand people living in other parts of our countries but it's harder to try and understand people living in other countries. We make it happen.

What is your impact?

With our idea we can better see where the other nations come from and what kind of ideas they have behind their agendas.
We think that everyone has thought sometimes "This can only happen here". Let's show that it actually happens everywhere - or let them actually know that it only happens there. What kind of politicians French politicians are? What are the biggest issues in Germany? TV news show it. In the future we can understand it, too.

How do you get there?

- We'll create a web tool which makes it simple to subtitle the news in all possible languages.
- We'll get all the needed copyrighted materials
- We'll get the first translators to translate first news to English where it's easier to translate them to other languages too
- We'll search for media companies for extra support
