Europe as a social project, based on justice and solidarity – that is the vision our guests of this Video- Session unfold after an hour of inspiring discussion. They share the same dream that all citizen of Europe should be at a same level – so also young people in Eastern European countries don’t feel as “second hand Europeans”.

Ulrike Guérot, founder and director of the European Democracy Lab, Germany, Vincent Engel, Professor of Literature at the CU Louvain, Belgium, and Stamen Balchev, student of political sciences from Bulgaria, exchanged their views on the current situation in Europe and why Europe needs visions and “un myth rassembleur” in future.
