Interactive Discussion: About Balconies & Utopias | A new story for Europe

“Europe is about unifying people, not integrating states.” With this statement 30,000 artists proclaimed the European Republic on balconies all over Europe on November 10th, 2018. The “European Balcony Project” had been initiated by political scientist Ulrike Guérot, writer Robert Menasse and theatre director Milo Rau. Is all of this nothing more than a utopian vision, or could the upcoming European elections mark the beginning of a new era?

The Austrian Embassy Brussels, Club Alpbach Brussels and the European Forum Alpbach cordially invite you to an interactive discussion themed “MyEurope – MyStory“. Our goal will be to initiate an open-minded discussion between European thinkers, politicians, and the next generation on the future of the EU. The main question of the evening will be: What’s your story for Europe? The event is part of the project “MyEurope – MyStory” initiated by the Forum Alpbach Network and the European Forum Alpbach.
