Europe to join in | Theme Diversity — with Special Guests Herr & Speer
You will also be able to speak about Europe in May: This time online and with two exciting guests. European activists Mr & Speer will exchange views on diversity in Europe with Jenny Paul, Head of Europe Direct Munich and you. What it means to bring different cultures, languages and traditions under one roof, and why diversity also includes curiosity and tolerance. How can we build a common future if, in some cases, there are issues on which we will never agree? Or are disagreements and an open debate even helping to build a successful future? As always: Everybody is warmly welcome, no matter how much or little prior knowledge exists! The focus is on joint reflection and debate. If you wish to submit a question or issue in advance, please do not hesitate to contact us by e-mail to email@example.com. The round table, organised in cooperation with the Neuhausen City Library, will take place online. There is no need to register. Participation is free of charge.
Event report• Open Discussion Event• 19 participants from the general public The main theme of the evening is about diversity within the EU — in all its facets. The guiding questions were: • Countries, languages, traditions• What does diversity mean for everyone in Europe? • Are the differences strong? Or are they the reasons for disputes? • Many fear that their own (national) culture/tradition (and hence their identity?) will be lost — is this fear justified? Where does it come from? • Diversity as a whole — diverse life models• role models/feminism most important ideas and arguments• Diversity is important for Europe and can make us strong — but this diversity cannot really be explained, but needs to be experienced and experienced. The fear of the unknown may then also disappear. In this respect, programmes such as Interrail for All are important for young Europeans to be successful in the future. • The EU must not lose on the ‘small’ everyday issues, but must address the big issues and take bold steps — for example, important decisions should be taken by qualified majority and cannot be blocked by a state. • Moreover, the content of the contract to which each Member State has committed itself should also be enforceable and, for example, exclusion should be possible if, after the signature of the Treaties, a member (immediately) recalculates all European values or fails to implement them.
