The Future of Europe in the shadow of Brexit – Vienna Event
European Future Forum and New Europeans
warmly invite you to join us to discuss:
The Future of Europe in the shadow of Brexit.
Brexit reminds us that Europe is also a union of citizens.
What can a new politics look like, based on the shared values we hold as Europeans?
When does European integration become more than just a trade-off between national interests?
Where do we develop the solidarity that underpins a stronger sense of European identity?
How do we make the EU more democratic and give citizens a greater sense of ownership?
Who does the EU belong to, if not the citizens?
