  • European Cities From the Bottom-Up - New Responses From Civil Society and Local Administration

    -

    Civil society actors and local administration share the goal of wanting to improve the lives of the community. Yet, collaboration between these two groups often is disconnected. Today’s turbulent world requires that we act together, in new forms of alliances and more committed than before in order to drive future change. This session explores exemplary cases of collaboration and looks on the pain points of cross-sector collaborations as well as the places of potential. Four activists from across Europe share their insights and experiences from working in partnerships across sectorial boundaries.

  • #DialogueOnEurope - New Ideas for Migration Policy

    -

    Increased migration influx to Europe is a hot topic for politicians, journalists and experts, but so far, few satisfying solutions have found both effectively help refugees and to prevent fears of the unknown that propel the populist tide. You know how to strengthen European dimension of local governance? You have ideas for better migration and integration policy? You want to support European integrity? Join our workshop and share your thoughts for building Europe bottom-up!

  • Civil Society in Georgia on the Way Towards Europe

    -

    Georgian civil society witnessed their state transforming from a former Soviet republic to having an association agreement with the European Union. How can culture form the European identity of Georgians? The European choice is a citizens’ choice – two participants from Forum Tblisi taking place in October will report on the outcomes.

  • Creating active citizenship: The Notion of Civil Society and Culture in Belgrade and Amsterdam

    -

    Where is the citizen? Now that the Treaty of Lisbon (2009) has come into force, the relations between the member states and the European Union are in favour of a transnational definition of citizenship. Let’s start with the citizens position and have a look at the situation in Belgrade and Amsterdam: Do we have to change our lives? Let’s talk about it

  • New Stories for Europe?

    -

    This fishbowl discussion brings together writers and intellectuals from different European nations. In an open dialogue with the audience, we explore possibilities for new narratives for Europe. It is inspired by a roundtable on the future of Europe, which took place at the International Congress for Democracy and Freedom as part of the 17th international literature festival berlin in September 2017.

  • Next Generation, Please!

    -

    (Part 1) Populism is on the rise and the European project is in jeopardy. What role does rhetoric play in all of this? The workshop will use a political speech as a point of departure to embark on a critical reflection about the past and to express hopes and wishes for the future. The different parts of the workshop consist of the analysis of the speech, followed by a discussion between the students and a brainstorming session to discuss the topics that the students will address in their own speeches. The different speeches are presented at the end of the day. The story of Europe is best told by its citizens. What do you have to say?

  • Creating a European Public Sphere

    -

    A European public sphere is a future necessity, but finds itself still in the foreign politics section of a newspaper. Although many political and social problems have a continental dimension, journalism only too focuses on the national level. We will take a look at the \"European Newsroom\" through the whole editorial process from a European perspective. The keyword of the workshop is “network”. We will investigate together with the audience how European ideas, stories, and angles are developed, how research in a broad European context can be organized, how the writing - and translation - and the distribution in an European framework can be constructed. Can a European public sphere lead to a common European Narrative?

  • What Can Theatre (for Children) Do for Europe?

    -

    A theatre stage is an opportunity to act out models of the world we want to live in: dominant discourses can be exhibited and questioned together with the audience. On stage we can create the unexpected and reinvent the habits of our societies. Young people today take Europe and its structures for granted: Borders have always been open and Rome, Lisbon or Berlin are just around the corner. But work and visions are needed to perpetuate the European project. We want to discuss how the freedom of our art form can be the starting point for an active European citizenship.
