Are We Europe #16

For too long, headlines about Europe have obsessed over Brussels, Brexit, and borders, ignoring the bigger picture.

We believe Europe needs journalism that collaborates across nations, generations and identities. That highlights solutions to shared challenges. That focuses on its people.

As an award-winning media outlet, we bring you borderless journalism from the next generation of storytellers.

From vitamin D supplements to the re-invented cigarette break and the power of antibiotics: these are the substances we take on the sidelines of the infamous war on drugs.
