This Was the Daring New Spaces SummitLaying out bold visions of a 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.
Passing on the Baton
How will the EU Council Presidency continue to work on a European public sphere, as Portugal takes over from Germany? Michael Roth, State Minister for Europe from Germany and Tiago Antunes, Secretary of State Assistant to the Prime-Minister were interviewed on this and other European matters. Watch the full conversation, moderated by Daring New Spaces fellows Dr. Emilia Palonen and Dr. Stefan Cibian again here:
For the past months, the project Daring New Spaces has created bold visions of a European public sphere for the year 2025 – as well as policy proposals on how we can get there. These visions were based on expert interviews and developed by young civil society leaders from across Europe using a future studies methodology. At the summit, the most promising ideas and policy recommendations from this process were presented and discussed. This summit was organised by Das Progressive Zentrum, together with the German Federal Foreign Office, the European Council on Foreign Relations and Stiftung Mercator.
