We all know that “AEGEE strives for a democratic, diverse and borderless Europe, which is socially, economically and politically integrated […]”. But what kind of political and economic models do we have in mind when we say this? Are we federalists? Do we wish to see a Europe of regions? Is common currency the best way to go?


CazH_PpUUAAzv-gEuropean high-level politicians, philosophers and artists are discussing a “New Narrative for Europe”, the raison d’être of the EU today, more than 60 years after its creation. It is a good moment to discuss where we stand in this discussion.

And that is why we would like to invite you to take part in this conference with the topic of “New Narrative for Europe: towards Europe of citizens”. The event will take place between the 7th and 9th of April in Warszawa and it is supported by the European Commission.

The conference will have an interactive methodology consisting of round tables with politicians and activists, workshops and debates. During the Idea Factory sessions, participants will work on solutions to the current European challenges. The ideas will be formed into the Manifesto that will be addressed to European decision-makers.

new-narrativeThe core team consists of  three very active AEGEE members: Mateusz Muszalski – President of the Audit Commission, Joanna Pankowska- member of Civic Education Working Group and last but not least, our President Aleksandra Kluczka. The event will also be a good opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with representatives from the political world, civil society, academia and media. Among many of the invited prestigious guests, we are happy to already announce Marcin Święcicki; Member of Polish Parliament and President of European Movement Poland.
