Now, more than ever, it is time for Europe to deepen the quality of its civil society. Rocked by a financial crisis on a scale never before imagined, Europe must act to rediscover its cultural values in order to achieve a prosperous future for its citizens and the unification process. The Berlin Conference 2012 aims to take a stand by working to strengthen both the level of participation and the partnerships between European civil society, the European institutions, and European citizens. These partnerships should work together to foster positive European development, which can be achieved by motivating all parties to become actively involved in a “Cultural Coalition for a Citizens' Europe”.
The Berlin Conference 2012 is the first of a series of three events dedicated to a Europe from the bottom-up under the title of "Cultural Coalition for a Citizens' Europe". It will be followed by the Brussels Conversations 2012 by the partners of the European House for Culture on 16-18 November, and the Felix Meritis Foundation’s Amsterdam Conversation 2012 on 30 November.
