A public sphere is not only created and stimulated through media or marketplaces – but also art and culture. Since they play such an important role in Europe and for connecting people, Das Progressive Zentrum felt like it was important to give them both a role at the Daring New Spaces Summit on the European Public Sphere.
Over 100 participants discussed and debated future visions for Europe during the Daring New Spaces Summit on the European public sphere on 10 December. In keynotes and debates, and listening to pitches and poetry, the participants envisioned what Europe and its public sphere could and should look like in 2025. The event culminated with two project fellows interviewing Minister of State for Europe, Michael Roth (DE) and Tiago Antunes (PT), Secretary of State Assistant to the Prime-Minister.
The interdependence of European solidarity, European cohesion and a European public sphere Jana Puglierin | 2020
Beyond the doom and gloom that has dominated media coverage of the EU in recent years, there is another story to tell: the story of a strong and resilient European cohesion, which has held Europeans together like a powerful glue during the past decade of crises. Based on several data projects of the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR), Jana Puglierin sheds light on the interdependence of European solidarity, European cohesion and a European public sphere.
The future needs a vibrant European public sphere. But we need to work in the present to make it a reality.
Das neue Projekt des Progressiven Zentrums will Zukunftsvisionen für eine europäische Öffentlichkeit entwickeln und in die Trio-Ratspräsidentschaft der Europäischen Union (EU) einbringen.
