The States General of Europe (EGE) has offered a forum for European citizens, opened to the public on the subject of Europe, its challenges and future. A program of cultural, sporting and fun activities to complement the 18 panels and workshops that provides an opportunity for all generations to speak. They are organized at the initiative of an independent civil society with a pluralistic and participatory approach.

After the success of similar forums in Lille and Lyon, each with 4000-5000 participants, the organizers decided to repeat the experiment in 2010.
