Organised by the Belgian Chapter of the 89 Initiative
BRUGES, 3 April 2019 – On 11 April 2019, the Belgian Chapter of the 89 Initiative, a pan-European think-do tank based at the European Institute of the London School of Economics and Political Science will host an event at the College of Europe in Bruges (Room E), Dijver 8000, starting from 19:30 CET to discuss the questions collected with its #AskYourFuture campaign with Mr Guy Verhofstadt, President of the ALDE Group in the European Parliament, Lead candidate of OpenVld for the European elections and member of ALDE’s Team Europe.
The event aims at bridging the so called “Brussels Bubble” with citizens in all EU countries, and it revolves around the ambition to reach out to people who are not in contact with politics or the institutions of the European Union. The goal is, in fact, to get to know what changes and developments are most important to those who are not the “usual suspects”.
The format of the event will be a Keynote Speech from Mr Verhofstadt, followed by a debate revolving around the questions collected during the #AskYourFuture campaign.
On the same day as the event, 89 Initiative will be releasing a set of major policy recommendations for the new European Parliament. These have been developed by our five research programmes, which have conducted sterling work in the last six months.
The event will be broadcast live via the official Facebook account of the 89 Initiative.
