STATE OF EUROPE 2018

15th edition of State of Europe - #EuropeMatters

11 October 2018 - 09:00 - 18:00
Introduction

This year marks the 15th edition of Friends of Europe’s flagship event State of Europe. This invite-only, high-level brainstorm is recognized as one of Brussels’ most prestigious and innovative events. It brings together the best minds, global protagonists and decision-makers to brainstorm on Europe’s future.  

Europe matters. It’s done its job, albeit to various degrees of success. But given the events of the past 24 months, it is ripe for a shakeup. Within a year a new European Commission and Parliament will be in place. This year’s State of Europe discussants will co-design a Europe that still matters in 2030.

The choices we make or don’t make today will define the fate of Europe. That’s why we are producing a set of scenarios detailing the potential implications of policy decisions in key areas. This work will form the basis for the roundtable discussion.

From sitting and former (prime) ministers, to CEOs, NGO leaders, European Commissioners, members of Parliament, influencers and top journalists, discussants break out of their comfort zones and collaborate to find solutions to the challenges ahead. The event also engages our vibrant and diverse network of European Young Leaders and citizens through our 3.5 million citizen platform, Debating Europe.

State of Europe is a full-day event including multiple sessions. Please find a detailed agenda of the day shortly.
