*More about the debate

This EU crisis on the ground brings together journalists and local audience. Journalists from the 4 corners of Europe are converging in one city to analyse, investigate, report and compare to give a real European perspective to hopes and fears of people in your city regarding EU impact in a wide sense (jobs, cost of life, immigration, culture...) regarding the current context of financial and economic crisis.

Local debates have an important role to play in this new setup, providing insights and debate onto hot topics of local interest that the journalists will exploit at a European level. Europe is not just Brussels. Europe is first of all its cities, its regions, its suburbs. Bucharest joins the European community of cities hosting such a debate open to a young and bright audience
