We are Europe Citizens' Agora | Barcelona
RISK OF DISINTEGRATION, TIME FOR REFOUNDATION
Our second Citizen’s Agora in the framework of the “We are Europe” project is taking place in Barcelona on 26th of April at ESCI-UPF School of International Studies.
This event is organised in cooperation with garageERASMUS, Young European Federalists, fed federalistes d’esquerres and with the support of the European Commission programme Europe for Citizens and ESCI-UPF School of International Studies.
The Agora promotes societal engagement within the debate on the Future of Europe. It will allow you to address crucial topics such as future, challenges of democracy in Europe and the insight of local – national and European perspective on the future of Europe debate. Building on a strong coalition of civil society organisation, citizens and network of political stakeholders and regional authorities the Citizens’ Agora aims to encourage and strengthen European-oriented citizen participation to the European Parliament Elections 2019.
The European Parliament elections in May 2019 will see a crucial confrontation between opposite visions for the future of Europe. Nationalists and populists are on the rise across Europe and are trying to dismantle the achievements of the European project and hinder any further step forward. The “I choose Europe” campaign calls citizens who believe in the European unity to come out and vote, to speak up for the Europe they want, expressing their choice for a Strong, Democratic, Social and Federal Europe.
The programme of the Agora includes:
- Public debate :
- European Parliament elections: what is at stake for Spain and for Europe?
- What future for Europe: resurgence of nationalism or federal union?
- “I Choose Europe Fair” : partner organisations host stands in the court-yard of the university with material and interactive activities
- "I Choose Europe" - Music, drinks and cultural bites!
