This time, the FNF in cooperation with the Greek Liberal Monitor and KEFIM-Markos Dragoumis invites young people from 18 to 35 years of age to join an essay contest and present their ideas for the future of Greece.

How can we all make Greece sustainable to cope with future challenges as a part of the European family?
