What is the Berlin Initiative?

In the upcoming months, the Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE) will gather voices, hopes, and ideas. It is dedicated to the question of how we all envision the Europe of tomorrow. The Berlin Initiative for the Conference on the Future of Europe offers opportunities and scopes to enter in conversation with all Berlin actors, connecting them to Europe.

How does the Berlin Initiative work?

Representatives of numerous Berlin organizations meet regularly for short discussion rounds. The goal is to better coordinate Berlin projects, proposals, and events related to Europe and linked to the Conference on the Future of Europe. Within this framework, they present upcoming activities to each other, leading to cooperation, project ideas, and the exchange of specific Berlin approaches.
