The Congress of Europe
The Congress of Europe (CoE) is an independent pan-European initiative dedicated to develop an open, inclusive European society for all generations.
We live in a time of great social challenges. Europe faces a migration crisis, an economic-monetary crisis, a slowly awakening energy crisis and a fading trust in democracy and each other. The future remains uncertain and spreads fear throughout society. The CoE was founded in answer to rising public fears and populist movements in many parts of Europe. If we do not want populist demagogues to take the helm, we need to develop new inspiring visions and new leadership. The Congress of Europe movement is dedicated to this task, and it takes a leading role in developing the next generation of responsible European leadership. As a truly pan-European central hub for a continuous and responsible dialogue on the future of Europe, we regularly host congresses and organise events across the continent, we develop new networks and support various citizen-initiatives.
The Congress of Europe is independent from any existing political party, project or EU body and open to citizens and leaders from all stripes and colours.
