Advisory Board

The Advisory Board comprises personalities from different fields in society such as business, civil society, culture and politics. The Board has a counselling function for the initiative. Its members see themselves as partners and supporters of the process and meet twice a year in Brussels. The members of the Advisory Board take the results back to their committees and constituencies. Together with the Parliamentarian Working Group, the Advisory Board is the instrument with whose help the Strategy Group of "A Soul for Europe" gains access to politics. It thereby serves as a bridge between civil society and political decision-makers.
