Amsterdam 2019

Finding Europe & connecting generations

After many informal gatherings across Europe, CoE will host its first General Congress in April 2019, two months before one of the most important European elections in history will be held. The event will be followed by an ongoing series of events during which we’ll bring together the most visionary thinkers and leaders of our European society. During the three-day General Congress, we will offer a podium to many voices of inspiration and kick-off our Redesigning Europe Initiative: a joint search for a new, twenty-first century design for European cooperation.

One is as great as his/her contribution to future generations. Therefore, the Congress of Europe will invite today’s great thinkers and leaders for a dialogue with (high school) students. We invite them to inspire, to teach and council, but above all…to listen. Because it is their future which lays in our hands. On the last day of our Congress, high school students from the Netherlands will be at the center of the debate, to kickstart a new European dialogue.
