Together with the Association of European Foundations (DAFNE), United Europe organised a panel at the German Foundation Day on the question “European elections 2019: from a Europe of institutions to a Europe of citizens” on 5th June in Mannheim, Germany.
Almut Möller, head of ECFR Germany, opened the panel with a presentation of the latest study results on the subject of citizens in Europe.
Moderated by Barbara von Ow-Freytag (Prague Civil Society Centre) a panel discussion based on these study results followed, which presented the perceptions of the citizens of Europe and the relevance of Brussels policy in everyday life.
Anne Rolvering (Schwarzkopf Foundation), Almut Möller (ECFR Berlin), Max von Abendroth (DAFNE), Julius von Loringhoven (Friedrich Naumann Foundation), Rieke Schües (United Europe), Dr. Nina Smidt (Zeit Stiftung) and Helen Rivett (Debating Europe) discussed from the perspectives of youth, philanthropy, administration and business which options and opportunities the new EU Commission has to improve the reputation of the institutions among the citizens, which tasks fall to the nation states and how the young generation promotes the European idea.
