Event calendar

Since it was first launched in 2013 by a group of European foundations, the New Pact for Europe initiative has developed and discussed different strategic options and reform proposals for the EU’s future at more than 80 events in 17 EU countries. 

For its new phase “Rebuilding trust through dialogue”, the New Pact for Europe will continue to foster public debates in Member States and at EU level. I will first consist on 10 National Reflection Groups meetings. 

These national meetings will be followed by transnational exchanges between these groups. 

The ideas and recommendations elaborated will be shared with the public and with leading policy-makers in the EU and in the member states. They will also be discussed with a senior Advisory Group chaired by Herman Van Rompuy, former President of the European Council.

The ultimate aim of this new phase of the NPE project is to elaborate - with the help of a European Reflection Group - the details of a wider ‘package deal’ to equip the EU with the tools it needs to meet the internal and external challenges it faces, while also taking into account the diverse interests of its member states and citizens.
