Four different scenarios on the future of the EU will be presented to serve as a frame of reference for the following World Café. Participants are asked to identify the most important aspects and topics on the 'democratic deficit' of the EU, the role of citizenship education and practical approaches and projects. These will be summarised and fed into the conference workshops in the afternoon. Three key topics identified as important to discuss in more detail will also be used as a basis for three additional workshops in the afternoon.
