We have to get out of the bubble! But how? Ultimately, after all, it's always the same people talking about Europe. At the “Mercator Forum Europa!” on 6 and 7 September we aim, together with you, to tackle the challenges presently facing Europe. With around 100 players from politics, academia and civil society, plus recent immigrants and long-standing residents we shall make a case for innovative approaches.

Behind the diverse challenges, such as the successes of populist parties and a realignment of European migration policy, there is frequently a fundamental loss of confidence in the capability of the European Union. Our aim is to build up this confidence again. At the “Mercator Forum Europa!” we shall be working with you on strategies for solving concrete European challenges. At the same time we want to get more people enthusiastic about a united Europe and involve then in the discussion on its future structure.
