In the current crisis Europe finds itself facing declining support for the integration process; EU citizenship can reinforce citizens’ resilience and their appurtenance to a community of Europeans and thus embody a countermodel. Yet, while promising citizens novel opportunities and rights, challenges to the citizenship status in the EU continue to persist. Bottom-up action is needed. For that reason, 10 NGOs, cultural & civic organisations, universities and networks have joined forces since 2017 to come to a joint learning model for their students, their audiences, clients, stakeholders and similar organisms everywhere in Europe.

This event can only be attended physically at our studio. The recordings will be made available later on and can be viewed via or via our YouTube channel.
