[Online] State of Europe 2021
14 October at 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
The State of Europe high-level roundtable, now in its 18th edition, annually gathers 200+ influential figures from more than 40 countries to brainstorm on the future of Europe and to provide concrete recommendations on how to make Europe more relevant to its citizens.
As a forum for developing the exchange of ideas into recipes for action, it is second to none. We involve sitting and former (prime) ministers, CEOs, NGO leaders, European Commissioners, members of Parliaments, influencers, top journalists as well as youth, for a frank and open debate.
Friends of Europe’s trustees and European Young Leaders (EYL40), a solid pan-European network of up-and-coming leaders, including artists, writers and entrepreneurs, will also be in attendance. Our Debating Europe online community of 5 million users, will bring in the voice of citizens.
You can expect a wide array of sessions ranging from high-level plenaries, dedicated sessions with senior decisionmakers and intimate meetings with thinkers & doers. Circumstances allowing, the day-long event will be hybrid, allowing us to creatively share the exclusive experience of State of Europe with a broader audience across Europe and beyond.
From January to December 2021, the State of Europe will also be associated with a series of activities to develop ideas and foster exchanges on how to transform Europe. They include online debates with heavy-hitters, widely shared opinion pieces, and citizens’ debates.Friends of Europe firstname.lastname@example.org DD/MM/YYYY 15
