Article published on Nov. 10, 2010 is proud to announce a media partnership with 'A Soul for Europe', a civil society based initiative, organizing their conference in Berlin on 20 November 2010. Why this media partnership? Because both and 'A Soul for Europe' contribute to the building of a European citizenship. And we approve it! What's the Towards a Citizens' Europe conference about ?

On 20 November 2010, the conference Towards a Citizens' Europe will open the reflection on European citizenship focusing on 3 main axes: the role of citizens in European construction, the image of Europe and new forms of cooperation between culture, business and politics.

The aim is to question the need for a new understanding of (cultural) civicness in order to build a Europe with stronger civic roots. European integration entails promoting national images, value systems and intercultural dialogue. Cultural activities must make their influence felt beyond the cultural sector and European affairs that have so far been of a mainly economic and political nature need a cultural dimension.

Who's speaking?

Prominent personalities will take part to the discussion:

director Wim Wenders social scientist Paul Scheffer entrepreneur Arend Oetker EU-Commissioner Androulla Vassiliou Director General of the DG Communication of the EU Claus Haugaard Sørensen

Among the speakers you will also meet the European Parliament members Elmar Brok, Tanja Fajon, Sandra Kalniete, Jo Leinen, Doris Pack and Hans-Gert Pöttering as well as representatives of the “A Soul for Europe” Strategy Group.
