The core of our activities is built upon the ideas and stimuli produced by the interactions under the Europe Dome. The Catalogue of Ideas you can find on this page is a summary of the insightful remarks, most common topics raised and solutions discussed by participants in the Dome Talks.

It contains inputs collected in 62 Dome Talks in 8 countries during our two-year trip throughout Europe! These countries are Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Poland, Spain (Basque Country), and The Netherlands. In other words a preliminary roadmap to the problems of today’s Europe, which we must grapple with to develop the Europe of tomorrow!

 

 

In addition to the full PDF version spanning 70 pages, we also put together this interactive story map serving as a visual guide to our tour. Starting with San Sebastian, each location matches the picture featured, alongside a quote which relates to the region. Therefore, picture and quote might not necessarily come from the same place.

As you progress through the Catalogue, the topics addressed move, amongst others, from democracy, to inclusion, all the way to the EU copyright reform, giving you an idea of the thoughts, concerns and hopes of citizens all over Europe. You can find an overview on the first slide. However, if you are interested in a specific location or topic, feel free to play around with the interactive map and follow your own route!
