Where is Brussels?

The newspaper asks on Europe Day why so many young people know so little about the EU: "If it upsets you that young people cannot find Brussels on the map, the information provided to youths by the Danish government and the EU should upset you even more. Public servants and politicians are terrible at conveying knowledge, and even worse at recognising this fact. ... Beer prices and cheaper mobile phone rates are an example of how the single European market can be presented to the young. ... The point is not to trivialise and oversimplify EU topics, but to make them comprehensible and interesting. That will prompt young people to deepen their knowledge of the EU and their understanding of its many nuances."
