Ideen für einen transnationalen Europa-Wahlkampf - MeetEU diskutiert mit MEP Gaby Bischoff und EU-Experten beim Thinktank Polis180.

Seit vielen Jahren wird die Einführung transnationaler Wahllisten für die Wahlen zum Europäischen Parlament diskutiert. Bisher ist dieses Vorhaben an politischem Widerstand, aber auch an einer hohen juristischen Hürde gescheitert.

Vor diesemHintergrund schlagen Klaus und Moritz von “MeetEU” vor, eine Transnationalisierung des Wahlkampfs selbst zu fördern.

Anlässlich der Konferenz zur Zukunft Europas, lädt Polis180 die Autoren ein, mit der Europarechtlerin und Think-Tank-Expertin Thu Nguyen (Jacques Delors Centre), der Präsidentin der Europäischen Bewegung Deutschland Linn Selle und der Europaabgeordneten Gabriele Bischoff (S&D) über ihren Vorstoß zu diskutieren.

Will Europe soon be sitting in the dark💡🌃?

Norway votes! The country exports up to a quarter of the natural gas consumed in the EU. But more and more national parties are rejecting the environmentally harmful extraction of natural gas and oil. What does this mean for EU energy policy?⁠

One day after the Norwegian election we analyze the results and discuss the consequences for future relations between Norway and the EU. ⁠

Germany is facing its most unpredictable election in years.

What do you expect of the new German Chancellor? Should he or she hold a tough approach on 💶Eurobonds and common debt - or should the new Chancellor leave the European leadership to more progressive countries like France and Italy?

Which candidate will most effectively defend European interests in relations with 🇨🇳China and 🇷🇺Russia? And who has the best chance of being the new reforming force the European Union needs?

Tell us what you expect from the next German Chancellor. After a short introduction, you will have the opportunity to discuss your expectations with people from across Europe.

Date: Tuesday Sept. 21, 19:00 CEST

Tuesday, October 19 at 6:00 p.m. CEST
📌Zoom login details: (Click "Add the event to your calendar")

The EU wants to achieve carbon-neutrality by 2050. Cities are key players in this transition. They consume the most energy and emit the most greenhouse gases. So how is the Green Deal implemented on a local level?

Take the chance to discuss your ideas with the mayors of two important EU metropolitan regions.

The event will be held in English and is part of the Conference on the Future of Europe.

One of the most supported ideas on this year’s European Youth Event was a European Federation. How would it operate? And what would it mean for the future of the EU Member States?
