“Alternative Europe!” Final Conference

We have used the year of the 60th Anniversary of the Treaty of Rome together with Polis180, the Young European Feder­alists, Europäische Akademie Otzen­hausen and many other partners, to strengthen and sharpen the European consciousness especially among junior researchers, civil society activists and young profes­sionals. After several workshops and discus­sions within the project “Alter­native Europe!” over the last year, a final conference on the Future of the European Union on 7/8 December took place at Deutsches Architektur Zentrum DAZ Berlin. On this occasion, the young partic­i­pants of the project presented their visions for the future of Europe and a common manifesto and put them up for discussion.

The aim of the conference was to discuss visions for the further devel­opment of European Integration in the areas of Economic and Monetary Union, Social Europe, Common Foreign and Security Policy, Asylum and Migration Policy and digital society, as well as political partic­i­pation and citizenship with young scien­tists, young civil society activists and high-ranking repre­sen­ta­tives from politics, science, civil society and industry. The starting point of these discus­sions were future visions by the partic­i­pants of “Alter­native Europe!” about the Europe in which they want to live in the future.

The programme can be found here. Further infor­mation about the project “Alter­native Europe!” is available on alternative-europa.de.
