NECE New Year’s RECEPTION in Brussels (Belgium)

In 2014 all eyes are focused on the forthcoming European Parliament elections. There is considerable evidence that populist and nationalist parties will gain a lot of votes. In this situation citizenship education in Europe is of substantial importance and carries responsibility.

Doris Pack, MEP and well-known Dutch publicist Paul Scheffer will be present to discuss their ideas on citizens’ participation in the EP Elections 2014 and the future of the EU with the audience. In order to promote a broad debate on the role and challenges of citizenship education in Europe in times of change a common intervention of politicians and citizenship educators should be put on the agenda.

The transnational initiative Vote Match Europe (based on a Voter Application Advice System, which was used by 13 million people during the last parliamentary elections in Germany) will introduce the first outcomes of their project.

Furthermore, we will present four scenarios on the future of the EU in 2030 in a video clip.

The NECE Initiative invites media representatives to the New Year’s Reception in Brussels:

Date: Tuesday, 28 January 2014, 7.00 pm- 8.30 pm (entry and registration from 6.30 pm)
Venue: Representation of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia to the European Union, Rue Montoyer 47, 1000 Brüssel
