Between the rise of populism, the refugee crisis and more recently Britain’s vote to leave the Union, the European project is being unprecedentedly challenged.

At the end of Friends of Europe’s flagship event, the State of Europe conference, a variety of participants were put into small groups to brainstorm on how to make Europe more relevant to lives of its citizens.

This “open space” – “open-source” session put together high-level decision makers and influencers into small groups, co-chaired by an experienced European politician and a European Young Leader, to ensure a national, political and generational diversity.

The ideas born from the session came in different shapes or forms, but there was a common thread – the need to focus on education, mobility and social inclusion.
