Berlin Conference 2022 on 8 and 9 November: “Co-Creating Europe from the Bottom-Up!”
Stiftung Zukunft Berlin and the civil society initiatives A Soul for Europe, Wir sind Europa (We are Europe) and Cities for Europe once again organised the 2022 Berlin Conference, which was titled “Co-Creating Europe from the Bottom Up!” and took place at the Allianz Forum Berlin, next to the Brandenburg Gate.
On November 8 and 9, the public discussions in Berlin brought together representatives from civil society, the arts and culture, and politics to discuss the importance of the bottom-up approach for the future of Europe from different perspectives.
On November 8, a discussion about the responsibility of cities and regions and their citizens for the success of the European project and its future kicked off the conference. On November 9, we first discussed the role of cultural workers and artists for a more humane Europe. Afterwards we focused on the bottom-up approach and the network platform “Europe Bottom-Up”. This digital action and cooperation platform brings together committed people who see themselves as actors “from below” for a communal Europe. The event traditionally concluded with “The State of Europe Speech”, which this year was given by the President of the European Investment Bank, Werner Hoyer.
The detailed programme and the discussants of the conference as well as further information about the platform project can be found below:
