The story of Jakub

Thanks to the EU Jakub has been able to protect the forests of Slovakia and help reduce the hunting of wolves. He believes that it is important for people to spend time in nature from a young age so that their love for the environment grows.

This is a real-life story – one of 119 which have been produced, reflecting the lives of young people around Europe, and how they have been able to travel, learn, train and grow all thanks to the EU.

We all have things that we’re passionate about: from training to travelling, surfing the internet to saving the world. Living in the European Union provides endless opportunities to do what you love – wherever that may lead. EU legislation and initiatives can help unlock your potential and ignite your inspiration, giving you the tools to pursue your passion.

Want to expand your horizons? Well, it all comes down to EU and me.
