We tend to talk about freedom of movement within the EU as an abstract concept. In reality, moving to a new place involves a million little moments of awkwardness, sweetness, and human vulnerability. This week, we bring you a story of what freedom of movement actually felt like, for a 14-year-old Romanian moving to Germany.
About this series
This is the third episode in a new series called This Is What a Generation Sounds Like—a collaboration between The Europeans Podcast and Are We Europe. It brings you personal stories from young Europeans across the continent, tackling a broad range of issues affecting them. This series is produced in cooperation with Allianz Kulturstiftung, an independent not-for-profit cultural foundation committed to strengthening cohesion in Europe using the tools of art and culture. Find out more at kulturstiftung.allianz.de.
The episodes are all sound-rich audio productions, coupled with a visual interpretation of the story, merged into a new concept: a Visual Podcast. Starting off with an audio-first story, we combine it with visuals that serve as a guide, accompanying the story through another lens.
