saturday 17 april 2010

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. In acknowledgement of the 60th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration and the new terms of office for the European Parliament and Commission, the third National Forum on Europe III will be held Saturday, April 17, 2010 in Strasbourg on the theme: “Europe: a legacy and its responsibilities.”

The guest of honour for the third States General will be Germany.

In the first two States General, more than 120 stakeholders participated in many fields, including political, economic, labour, intellectual and activist.
