“Power to the People – How do rising living costs affect your life?” – A European citizens’ assembly

16.February 2023 19:00 - 21:00

Register right here!

Dear friends,

As rising living costs are affecting people in all the different countries around Europe, we want to invite you to share your personal experience with it:

What does inflation mean for your life? 

How are you adapting to it?

How does it influence your perspective of the future?

As everyone of us is affected by political choices on the European Level, we want to complement expert discussions by discussions between us, the citizens. To make all voices heard, we will split up into small groups to give everybody a trusted space to speak.

This event is a chance to express yourself and to listen and learn about different perspectives on shared European problems.

Because reflecting on common fears, hopes and challenges is the first step of building a European community of citizens that can make their voices heard. As we all sit in one boat, we should start navigating it together!

When? Thursday, 16 February 2023 – 7 pm to 9 pm CET (Brussels/Berlin)
