State of Europe 2020: open source governance fit for the 21st century


The State of Europe high-level roundtable is a fixture and a highlight on the European calendar. The reason is simple: it is a place where top leaders from the world of politics, business and civil society, from Europe and across the globe, connect and debate Europe. And it is through the collective intelligence of the 200+ decision-makers in attendance that we influence and shape Europe’s policies.

This year marks Friends of Europe’s 20th anniversary. Our founding principle, which continues to date, is that Europe is made better and sustainable through collaboration, multi- stakeholder engagement in its policies, and connecting with its citizens. Bringing together sitting and former prime ministers, to CEOs, NGO leaders, ministers of state, European Commissioners, and top journalists, State of Europe crowdsources recommendations on key policy areas to develop and define Europe´s future. Friends of Europe’s vibrant and diverse network of European Young Leaders brings fresh perspective to solving Europe´s problems, while the voice of citizens is heard through our 4.3 million citizen platform, Debating Europe.
