Let’s meet, MeetEU!

➡️On Sept. 22, 18:00 CEST (19:00 EEST, 5pm BST) we invite you to discuss with us the future of MeetEU.

It's now 6 months since we officially launched our pan-European discussion platform.

On Tuesday 29 Sept at 18:00 CEST we like to present you a cool initiative: the European HomeParliaments by Pulse of Europe.

What is it about? A European HomeParliament is a meeting of 4 to 8 people who discuss and answer a European question. Anyone can become a host of such a HouseParliament. The citizens' movement Pulse of Europe provides you with all the documents. The results of your discussions do not end up in a drawer somewhere, but are sent to EU policy-makers, like Ursula von der Leyen, Manfred Weber, Ska Keller or Damian Boeselager.

The current round runs until November 1st.

➡️Hendrik Michel from Pulse Of Europe Frankfurt will show you how it works and how you can participate.

Join us at Talkroom 1:

Child Rights and Germany’s 2020 EU Council Presidency

Education gives children the power to dream of a better future. But millions of children lack learning opportunities. They live in conflict zones, suffer malnutrition and are pushed into child labor or child marriage. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic an additional 40-70 million children could fall into extreme poverty. EU decisions have an enormous impact on children’s lives inside and outside Europe. That is why UNICEF is calling for a comprehensive „EU Child Rights Strategy“.

➡️On 6 Oct, 18:00 CEST (19:00 EEST, 5pm BST) we talk to
Lydia Berneburg from UNICEF
about the UNICEF recommendations for the German EU-Presidency to protect child rights.

Hey, next WEDNESDAY we warmly welcome Delara Burkhardt a MEP of S&D on our Discord server:

🗓 Oct. 14, 19:00 CEST (20:00 EEST, 6pm BST)

Will the pandemic turn out green?

The European Commission defined the Green Deal as a roadmap to transform Europe into a sustainable and carbon neutral continent by 2050.

However, will the pandemic push that goal to the background? Or has the COVID-19 crisis shown that we can take radical and immediate measures? That is what we’d like to discuss with Delara Burkhardt, MEP and a member of the European Parliament’s Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety.
