The core question at the heart of the “Jubel European Democracy Festival” is: how to strengthen democracy in Europe, identify European citizens’ priorities, concerns and ideas for the EU’s future and their place in this future?
The festival wants to contribute, by means of a bottom-up approach, to the idea of citizen consultations launched by French president Macron and endorsed by his fellow heads of state and government, as well as the consolidated initiative of the European Commission, with the help of a structured output about the future of the European democratic project and the current functioning of the European Union.
The Jubel festival wants to be something completely different than anything that has been seen so far under the European sky. In expression, content and crowd.
The Jacques Delors Institute participates in the Jubel Festival by organising a citizen consultation on Energy Europe, animated by Thomas Pellerin-Carlin and Emilie Magdalinski, research fellows, Pierre Quénéhen, events manager and Claire Versini, head of development.
This citizen consultation takes place in the Workshop Tent, within the Civil Society Village, between 1pm and 2:30pm.
