Sphere

The “European Public Sphere” initiative creates a public space for Europe’s future issues. With its Europe Dome, a geodesic cupola, the initiative invites people with thoughts and ideas to converse with each other! Together, we want to assemble the building blocks for the social architecture of Europe.

“We are holding public conversations on the future of Europe. Public and open. All citizens are invited to participate if they want to contribute to the further development of our society.

“We want to organize small mini-conventions on the future of Europe, with twenty or thirty people. Of course, we cannot set up an entire convention process, as for example Emmanuel Macron calls for. But we can give an idea for the future, how we can self-organize. We can show that one can just do it!”
