Are We Europe Issue 15 – Down to Earth

Select Title

Are We Europe aims to report on the often neglected and ever-changing state of the European identity by empowering aspiring European journalists who are motivated to explore this topic.


Europe’s land, if shared equally, should be enough to sustain all those who live on it. But not in practice. Which raises the question: who works the land—and who does it belong to?

For this issue we’ve explored land use and land rights around Europe.
From Scottish crofters to the people curtained behind Ibiza’s party scene, the land informs both people’s identity and their sense of belonging. The magazine—almost 100 pages long and full of incredible photography, illustrations, and writing—is a much needed breath of fresh air for those in concrete-filled environments.
