The current crisis only increases the need for pan-European cooperation. For too long, the discourse on European politics has been voiced either by out-of-touch technocratic Brussels bureaucrats or by populists calling for a nostalgic U-turn to their nation-states. Yet, this current crisis might offer opportunity for Europe to truly find its feet; to get out of one of the biggest crises since WW2 – together.
Bearing this in mind, the Civic Council project proposes a route forward: during three meetings in Amsterdam, Palermo and Warsaw, international thinkers and artists explore with locals the possibility of a shared European story to serve as the fertile soil for a strong, united, and democratic Europe in the decades to come.
