European Orientation: Great Value Discussion
European Orientation: The European Union is known to be taking major steps and making joint efforts in the event of crises. The COVID-19 pandemic was a historic international crisis that weighed the cooperation of citizens, institutions, states and Europe to resolve the situation. For almost a few years, European countries saw lockdowns, travel bans, quarantine, restrictions and health recommendations. On the other hand, Europe and Finland have shown a rapid capacity to recover from the pandemic through vaccines, gradual opening of restrictions and common economic solutions. However, as the pandemic eases, is there a return to normal again? Did the COVID-19 pandemic change citizens’ values? In what direction is Finland, Europe and the world moving in the post-Covid pandemic? Members of the European Parliament, Archbishop Tapio Luoma, Minister of Foreign Affairs Pekka Haavisto, and Tiina Laatikainen, Director of the Welfare Actors of the THL are discussing the topic and answering citizens’ questions. Welcome to the discussion on 23 November from 17.00-19.30 to EU@Oodi on the 1st floor of Helsinki Central Library Oodi, at: Töölönlahdenkatu 4, 00100 Helsinki Offering coffee and snacks from 16.40. Please register in advance, as there are limited number of places: https://forms.gle/cXvwziFdcovPBv2u8 The European Orientation Campaign The debate is part of the national European Orientation Campaign for the Conference on the Future of Europe. European Finland invites you to a round table to discuss the future of Europe. In the course of the year, we will deal with the EU’s foreign policy, the environment, values, integration, enlargement, defence and security policy, the social dimension and all the issues that affect EU citizens. Topics you can't afford to keep quiet because agitators, provocators, authoritarian leaders, populists, trolls and demagogues have already got their mouths. Now it’s your turn. It is time to take responsibility for the future of Europe. Tell us how to build a better Europe?
