​In partnership with Friends of Europe, TownHall is engaged in “Funky Fridays” to offer a collaborative space for citizens, today’s and tomorrow’s leaders and anyone wanting to contribute to a better world. Other partners include the Anna Lindh Euro-Mediterranean Foundation for Intercultural Dialogue, Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), The Good Lobby, The New Citizen, and Solidar.

Topics

Brussels is not Europe, and the discussions that take place here are far from representative of the issues that concern many of Europe’s citizens. Governments across the world are struggling with this disconnect as citizens show an increasing lack of trust in politics and politicians.

Presentation of the activity and ice-breaker

16:10-16:40

The ice-breaker will be followed by a “Bazar”. During the Bazar, participants will be asked to put pen to paper and design a poster that reflects the reality of their communities and what the EU elections mean to members of those communities. Co-organisers may prepare their posters in advance.

Once the drafting session is over, participants and co-organisers will be encouraged to go around the room and see what others have created.  

16:40-17:00

Co-organisers will be asked to give short presentations on the campaigns that they are running, explaining how their organisations are helping to mobilise citizens in the run up to the European elections.

17:00-17:30
