Consequences for Europe – drawn by civil society actors and politicians
The Berlin Conference takes place every two years. The next event will be held in 2014.
The "A Soul for Europe" initiative was born in 2004 with the first Berlin Conference.
It brings together individuals from the cultural sector, politicians and representatives of the media, the business world and other areas of society. The Berlin Conference is a civil society platform to define and initiate specific, common steps to strengthen the cultural component of European development.
The Berlin Conference served as the model for the Forum X conferences organised by local NGOs in Belgrade, Pécs, Lyon, Skopje, Sofia, Cluj, Guimarães, Prague, Priština, Istanbul and other cities.
