ELIAMEP participates as a partner in the project “Moving EuropE Together (MEET): from Local Citizens’ Agoras to the Conference on the Future of Europe,” an ambitious project set up by a network of civil society organisations (CSOs) across eight member states under the coordination of the European Policy Centre (EPC). Its aim is to meaningfully involve European citizens in the debate on the future of Europe by reinforcing bottom-up synergies and Europe-wide collaboration. ELIAMEP has organised two Local Citizens’ Agoras, the findings of which were presented during the public discussion by Spyros Blavoukos, Senior Research Fellow, Head of Ariane Condellis Programme at ELIAMEP and Associate Professor at the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB).
This was followed by a roundtable discussion with Miltiadis Varvitsiotis, Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs, Harry Theoharis, Member of the Hellenic Parliament for New Democracy, Ioannis Bournous, Member of the Hellenic Parliament for SYRIZA and George Pagoulatos, Director General at ELIAMEP and National Representative and Member of the Plenary Session of the Conference on the Future of Europe. The discussion was moderated by Adriana Maggania, journalist at the Hellenic Public TV (ERT).
The event was attended by citizens who participated in the Local Citizens’ Agoras, national and regional policy makers, academics and journalists.
