In the run-up to the European elections in May 2019, Germany’s leading news website Zeit Online is teaming up with fifteen European media organisations from all over Europe to jointly organise the dialogue project Europe Talks. The aim is to spark one-on-one discussions between people who live in different European countries and hold opposing political opinions.
On the 11th of May, Europe Talks will bring together thousands of Europeans who meet either online via video calls or in person. More than 17,000 participants have signed up. For the first time, thousands of Europeans will talk about the same political issues at exactly the same time.
​​​​​​​To celebrate the launch of the event, the Europe Talks Conference at BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels will convene media partners, supporters and participants in one place. Prominent European voices will take the stage to share their passionate views of Europe and to celebrate what makes Europe unique.
