Cologne connects Europe – cancelled
12. May 2020
Due to the Corona-crisis, this event cannot take place as planned. Instead, we would like to invite you to our first online Public Sphere ever on 11 May. You can find more info and the registration link here.
On 12 May the time has come: the European Public Sphere season starts!
6 partner organisations from Denmark, Poland, the Netherlands, Portugal, Finland and Belgium will visit Democracy International in Cologne through our the Connect Europe project. Together we want to explore what our future in Europe should look like.
What is Connect Europe?
In 2020 the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights will celebrate its 20th anniversary. In order to make it more present and relevant, each partner organisation takes on one of the 6 chapters and organises an event on the topic in its home country. The focus is an open discussion with citizens about the six fundamental rights of the Charter: Dignity, Freedoms, Equality, Solidarity, Citizens’ Rights, Justice.
Democracy International invites you to exchange views on the fundamental right “citizens’ rights” on the forecourt of Cologne Central Station!
Additionally, the evening before the Dome Talks a free and open panel discussion with representatives from civil society, the city of Cologne and the European Parliament (tbc) will take place.
Further information will follow soon. You can find out more about Connect Europe here: https://www.eurights.org
We are looking forward to seeing you!
