Four citizens of this country will share their very personal thoughts on Europe with us.
The project Tell me about Europe is presented by the Goethe-Institut and the German Federal Foreign Office during the German Presidency of the Council of the European Union from July until December 2020.
As part of the project, citizens of twelve different cities have come together for discussions over the last few months. The topic – the constitution of Europe, about its past, present and future. The discussions are based on interviews with well-known Europeans, which are collected in the European Archive of Voices. In these interviews, contemporary witnesses who were born before 1945, tell young people about their lives and touch on topics such as wars and conflicts, the gap between town and country, gender (in)justice, freedom of religion or the return of nationalism.
We will end the series with an evening in the United Kingdom, shortly before the end of its European exit transition phase. Four citizens of this country will share their very personal thoughts on Europe with us. For a brief moment they will look at the continent and reflect what they are feeling during this time, especially in the midst of the Covid 19 crisis which makes us feel boundaries and distances more acutely again. The discussion will be moderated by journalist Rosie Goldsmith.
