From the #EuropeanTownHall Meetings to the European Thinking Labs Summit
 
The first phase of the DIALOGUE ON EUROPE project aimed at meet the civil society in five countries: Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal and France. For this purpose, we organised five #EuropeanTownHall Meetings during which the civil society of each country could enter into a dialogue with the German Federal Minister of State for Europe, Michael Roth. To discover how the #EuropeanTownHall Meetings looked like, have a look at our video.
 
The second step of the DIALOGUE ON EUROPE project will lead to political recommendations written by the Thinking Labs Contributors, who come from all five countries and from Germany. Together, they are developing new ideas inside four Thinking Labs and are meeting twice during so-called the European Thinking Labs Summits. This page gives an overview over all DIALOGUE ON EUROPE related events.
