Following the success of last year's Europe@Home photography competition, the European People's Party Group in the Committee of the Regions has joined together with the Party to challenge young people to shoot a 1-minute film on the topic of creating a better environment. We believe that climate change is one of the biggest challenges that Europe is facing and if we want to make a difference, change should begin at home. The top three film-makers will win a share of €1750 and a trip to Brussels to see their films screened in the European Parliament in October.

Can you capture the spirit of Europe in just 1-minute? If so, we'd like to hear from you. The closing date is 15 June so visit our websites for more details!
