Europe Village Community
Why? How? For whom?
The following principles reveal the organising structure behind the Europe Village Project community.
We are about to start an exciting, remarkable journey full of adventures! We are discovering Europe through stories, getting to know its people, cities, towns, and villages.
We are building communities
Our project is more than just creating a book. We believe that is not just the end goal that counts, but that the journey toward that goal is also deeply important. All our readers, authors, translators, colleagues, and partners are part of a community. We see one of our central responsibilities to be facilitating cooperation and camaraderie among the members of this community, and to enjoy creative collaboration working together. We hope that our efforts make the world a better place.
Our authors are all young and talented, at the beginning of their adult lives, though some of them are already published authors.
They believe in the power of creative collaboration and are engaged in representing European values as well as sustainable development.
Our novel is going to be created for the public at large. We hope the effect of the novel on readers is both entertaining and thought-provoking. We are all hungry for great stories, since stories are an easy way to absorb knowledge and have our worldview expanded.
Our partners / We are partners
For those of us participating in the project, this is more than just work: it’s also our passion. We work collaboratively and embrace each other’s diversity, and believe that in doing so we all get to know ourselves better too. We make it a point to treat each other with respect and appreciation.
This is where our characters come from and where they return. Our readers travel with them as they explore the ancient streets of this beautiful, historic town, getting to know residents of Szentendre, both past and present, as well as its built environment and natural surroundings.
