a place of gathering to celebrate Europe's culture and heritage
and strengthen democracy conversation

Member of European Parliament MEP Niels Fuglsang from the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D) is hosting a talk about inequality in Europe at Political Festival of Europe

Political Festival of Europe will be held for the first time from 25 to 28 August 2022 in Mariager, Northern Denmark. The Festival is a platform and space where visitors from all over Europe will have the opportunity to share their visions for Europe’s future with politicians and decision-makers from across the continent. While aiming to strengthen the democratic conversation about the most pressing issues in Europe, the Festival is also a place of celebration of the diverse and rich cultures of Europe.

Several politicians, organisations and companies have taken up the initiative of organising their own event at Political Festival of Europe – among them is MEP Niels Fuglsang from Denmark. Niels Fuglsang is one of several MEPs from S&D to host their own event.

An important discussion for us collectively in the EU now is how to deal with the green transition and inequality, especially post-covid and in light of the Ukraine war. Previous austerity policies introduced to rebuild Europe after the debt crisis have proven unsuccessful and now is the time for social democrats to come up with a responsible, symmetrical and green answer,

Jan Bertelsen, CEO for Political Festival of Europe, believes that discussions around such pressing issues such as inequalities in Europe are truly crucial to be taken up by not only politicians and decision-makers, but also citizens.

It is only by sitting together with all parts of society and of Europe that we can really find constructive ways forward in Europe. Dialogue is key for everyone to be heard and for as many to have their voice represented in such important conversations – this is why we created Political Festival of Europe and this is what drives our mission,

Political Festival of Europe welcomes the proactiveness of the many MEPs from S&D in helping to shape the agenda of the Festival.

Political Festival of Europe is an annual democracy festival that serves as a platform for democratic dialogue about the most pressing issues on the European agenda. On the side of political events, the Festival is also a place of festivities that celebrates the rich and diverse culture and heritage of Europe.

Medlem af Europa-Parlamentet MEP Niels Fuglsang fra Gruppen for Det Progressive Forbund af Socialdemokrater i Europa-Parlamentet (S&D) arrangerer en talk om ulighed i Europa pĂĄ Political Festival of Europe

Political Festival of Europe – ”Det Europæiske Folkemøde” – løber af stablen for første gang den 25.-28. august 2022 i Mariager. Folkemødet er det sted, hvor de mange besøgende fra hele Europa får lejlighed til at dele deres ønsker for fremtidens Europa sammen med med politikere og beslutningstagere fra hele kontinentet. Selvom Folkemødets mål er at skabe en mere folkelig samtale om Europas mest presserende emner, er det også et sted for fejring af Europas diverse og rige kulturer.

Flere politikere, organisationer og virksomheder har taget initiativ til at arrangere deres eget arrangement på Political Festival of Europe – blandt dem er MEP Niels Fuglsang fra Danmark. Niels Fuglsang er en af ​​flere MEPer fra S&D, der arrangerer deres eget event.

En vigtig diskussion der gælder for os alle i EU nu er, hvordan vi skal håndtere den grønne omstilling og ulighed, især post-covid og i lyset af Ukraine-krigen. Tidligere sparepolitikker, der blev indført for at genopbygge Europa efter gældskrisen har vist sig at være mislykket, og nu er tiden inde til, at socialdemokraterne kommer med et ansvarligt, symmetrisk og grønt svar,

fremhæver Niels Fuglsang. Tweet

Jan Bertelsen, CEO for Political Festival of Europe, mener, at det er vigtigt for både politikere, beslutningstagere og borgere at være en del af diskussioner om presserende emner som netop uligheder i Europa. Det er afgørende at så mange som mulig er en del af samtalen.

Det er ved at samle alle dele af samfundet og af Europa, at vi virkelig kan finde konstruktive veje frem i Europa. Dialog er nøglen til, at alle bliver hørt, og for at så mange som muligt kan få deres stemme repræsenteret i de her samtaler – det er derfor, vi har skabt Political Festival of Europe, og det er det, der driver vores mission,

lyder det fra Jan Bertelsen. Tweet

Political Festival of Europe hilser den proaktive indsats af de mange MEPer fra S&D velkommen til at hjælpe med at forme festivalens dagsorden.

Political Festival of Europe/Det Europæiske Folkemøde er en årlig festival, der fejrer demokratiet og er platform for den demokratiske samtale. På Festivalen vil vi diskutere de mest presserende emner på den europæiske dagsorden.
