What you can expect during a Talking Europe event

The events will include two roundtable sessions of 1 hour and 30 minutes each and a keynote speech open to the public. At the events there will be at least 3 experts, while the participants to the roundtable sessions will be about 12. The discussion will be facilitated by a trained moderator and will be finalised to create a policy paper – refined in 2 webinars after the event – that will be presented at the European Parliament on 16/10/2018. You will have the chance to network with different people, make new friends and have your voice heard on issues related to your region in the European space!

More about Talking Europe

The 1989 Generation Initiative has been granted funds to implement the project “Talking Europe” from the Open Society Foundations. The goal of the project is to open up the debate on the Future of Europe, to make it more inclusive and closer to the regional perspectives!

There will be 8 events finalised to the writing of a policy paper.

Participants will be also invited  to join an online repository of young thinkers where you can introduce yourself and your views, providing your perspective on current affairs in their local community and who these relate to the EU. This will allow you to stay in touch with the community and create synergies.
