Hi there, next Tuesday we welcome climate activists from Poland, Austria, the UK and Spain:

Europe for Climate – Let’s Act Now!

On March 19, people around the world will take to the streets to raise awareness for the 1.5°C degree goal. In the EU, more than 130 rallies are planned.

What are they demanding from European politics, what are their fears and hopes? Why is the demand for 'climate justice' crucial, and what does it entail?

Our event aims to exchange ideas between EU climate activists. After our guests have introduce themselves, we will engage in conversation and look at what our national governments are doing on climate change.

This event is organized in cooperation with the French movement 'Youth for Climate'.

We are thrilled to announce another event for this week: On 🗓 Thursday, March 25, 19:00 CET (20:00 EET / 6PM UK&PT) we are hosting a talk with “MEP Assistant”.

First created to have a few laughs about the life as a parliamentary assistant, “Mepassistant” became one of the main satirical (but not only) figure of the Eurobubble Twittosphere.

After leaving the European Parliament, he recently launched the first-ever Eurobubble channel on the popular live-streaming platform Twitch. This channel, through interviews and other events, aims to put faces on the European Union, learn about it, and to recreate positive contact and interaction between EU experts and EU citizens.

How did he come up with the project? Why Twitch? How does the organization work in the background and what is his motivation?
