Description: The war in Ukraine is tragic and has an enormous impact on people. It is putting democratic dialogue, freedom of expression, and social and cultural co-operation under huge pressure, especially in the countries around the Baltic Sea, including the Nordic and Baltic countries. For this debate, we've invited four people from various organisations whose work is affected by the situation in Ukraine. Together, they will try to answer the questions: How does not having co-operation, sharing information, and having open dialogue affect individuals, society in general, and therefore democracy? Where is this leading us? What does the future hold for listening to and talking with the societies on the other side? Our questions to them are also: How can culture serve as a medium for understanding in a way that journalism cannot? How can connections at the individual and person-to-person levels help?

Description: Meet four women from Ukraine, Russia, the Baltic countries, and Denmark as they talk about how the war in Ukraine is affecting their lives, the lives of their families, their work, and their hopes for the future. In this debate, we鈥檒l also attempt to shed light on the impact of the war in Ukraine on society in general and therefore democracy in our region through the people and, most importantly, we鈥檒l look at how we can restore peace in Europe. These four women are not the only ones affected by the war. There are millions more like them. The war continues to influence the political landscape in Europe and threatens its stability. If we鈥檙e to build more democratic and peaceful societies, it鈥檚 vital that we understand the differences and contexts that the individuals from the nations subjected to conflict and the region as a whole both represent and bring to society. It is important to give voices to individuals to enable them to understand each other better and to identify a way towards a peaceful future.

Description: The great voice from Greenland. Rasmus Lyberth can fill venues to the point of bursting and excite both audiences and reviewers alike. It is always a captivating and entirely unique experience to hear Rasmus Lyberth sing his Greenlandic songs. Rasmus possesses a very special ability to convey those grand, dramatic tales, full of contrast, that encapsulate/exist in both Greenlandic nature and the fate of men. With his self-composed music and his enchanting voice, Rasmus sings about Greenland鈥檚 nature, the conditions of its people, and the development of his homeland in a way that transcends language barriers and moves audiences. The Greenlandic singer, songwriter, and actor has since the 1970鈥檚 been one of the country鈥檚 most popular profiles and through his music and art, Rasmus has brought the country鈥檚 beautiful nature, its people, and its culture, to an international stage, as one of the most popular representatives of Greenlandic artistry in history. With him at Political Festival of Europe will be the fantastic, English violinist Jane Clark, known from the duo Jane & Shane and for touring with Niels Hausgaard and Allan Olsen.

Description: When Klezmofobia performs, a party is guaranteed to ensue, with singing, dancing, listening, and kissing, as the audience is made to feel at home and as though they have been specially invited. Klezmofobia is one of the few Danish orchestras that have played live on Mexican TV, danced around the little mermaid statue at EXPO in Beijing, performed on Svalbard after having driven a snowmobile in -20 degree Celsius, and a range of other quirky and enviable events. The band released their first album in 2006 and won a DMA for the best world album of the year. They have released a total of 3 albums. The band writes most of their music themselves, which is inspired by the Eastern European Jewish folk music KLEZMER. Songs are in Yiddish and the audience sings along as though the concert was one big family celebration. The Eastern European Jewish folk music genre klezmer sounds particularly refreshing in Klezmofobia鈥檚 interpretation, and the band always manages to renew itself. You are served a broad selection of atmospheres, and under the Eastern European melancholy streams happiness and sorrow in slow mournful ballads and upbeat instrumental klezmer party songs. The singer Channe Nussbaum is the face of the band, and continues to prove her significant singing talent, which has made her the unofficial Northern European queen of klezmer. Her grand vocals are indisputable, and she truly manages to break through to the audience.

Description: On 23 February 2022 the European Commission published a proposal for a directive on corporate sustainability due diligence, meaning that the European Commission wishes to make sure that companies respect their social responsibility. This directive is meant to hold businesses accountable for harming human rights and the environment while ensuring good governance. Is this something the EU should control? What is the impact of measures like this on businesses and for consumers? What will it mean for the import of goods into the EU? What about exports will we stop dealing with countries that do not fulfill these requirements? Is it even possible for the European Commission to ensure that businesses act according to directive?

Description: At the moment, there is an ongoing transformation from petrol and diesel to electricity, in order to reduce CO2 emissions, at least when it comes to private cars. But one thing is private car ownership and usage, when it comes to the really large vehicles that have to drive long distances, there are a number of problems with using electricity as a fuel. Therefore, many believe that hydrogen and hydrogen-based fuels such as e-fuels are the way forward in heavy and freight transport.This is why a lot of projects have been put in motion to make green hydrogen more accessible. But why should we invest in green hydrogen specifically? for environmental reasons? how far into the future should we look in order to see hydrogen and e-fuels as the primary fuel in heavy vehicles? - and what major obstacles must we first and foremost face in order to get there?

Description: The climate crisis is one of the greatest challenges of our time and it requires radical political decision making, if we are to hinder the global temperature rising above 2 degrees. However at the same time, we see indications that some consequences of the green transition also bring social and geographic inequality. But how should the social balance be when the EU pursues climate policy for all 27 member states? Should the EU make a social redistribution that counteracts the social disparities created by the green transition? And what are the future prospects for the next 5-10-20 years for EU climate policy? We ask three Members of the European Parliament from S&D whether the climate is more important than social and geographic equality.

Description: Agriculture accounts for 20-25% of greenhouse gas emissions in terms of effect in the European Union. It has already been established that the EU shall be climate neutral in 2050. The 2030 benchmark is a 55% reduction compared to 1990. Between 2005 and 2019, the EU鈥檚 agricultural Greenhouse gas emission changed very little. How can we reach this benchmark? Reducing the production in the EU, especially of livestock, would directly reduce agricultural greenhouse gas emissions. But we also need to tackle food waste and discuss the need for making a shift in diet away from meat and dairy towards plant-based protein sources. Should we only eat foods that are in season locally? What are the current challenges in making the agricultural sector more green? Can we expect citizens to cope with the possible change in their diet? How do we motivate them to do so? How will the farmers have to adapt to this change? and how can we help them? What will be the new normal for European farmers anno 2050?

Description: The clothing production industry, especially fast fashion companies, has been criticized over the past years for contributing to the climate crisis. Cheap seasonal clothes have long been available to consumers both in store and online. In a world where fast fashion happens alongside raising attention to the climate footprint of clothes - how do we secure the production of climate conscious products while raising awareness amongst the public? How do we influence the production companies to be more climate conscious? Can we make 鈥榣ess鈥 the new 鈥榖lack鈥? And is that the task of regulators or should we leave it to the consumers? Should clothes be climate labeled in the same manner as electronics? So that the consumers can have a tangible idea of the climate footprint.

The Mediterranean? the Middle East? Russia? What is the end goal of European integration, or will the European Union continue to expand indefinitely?

Description: The European Union is often criticized for being too restricted, as well as elitist in the legislative process, often being accused of suffering from a democratic deficit, suggesting that the EU is 鈥渟omething that happens in Brussels鈥. So how do states, members of national parliaments, members of the European Parliament, NGOs and other organizations get influence on the legislation? In short, how can you influence EU-policy as a public affairs manager, politician and perhaps even as an ordinary citizen with the greatest amount of success?

How can other European countries best support and protect smaller and fragile democracies in Europe?

Is it the moral duty of well-established democracies to support smaller and fragile democracies? Should Europe act and if so how, and can we afford not to?

Is that the way forward for the EU? Will a federation challenge the role and power of the nation states? or will we be stronger with a centralized Brussels-based government? Is a federation even realistic with strong, independent European nations? Is there a better alternative other than two

Description: Migration is seen as a big issue in many European countries, and especially since 2015. Many European countries try to prevent migration from happening in many ways. Why do we try to combat migration, and is it necessary? Why do we not embrace people from other cultures, as well as from other continents? Will Europe continue to fight migration, or will it be necessary at some point for Europe to welcome migrants when the climate crisis worsens? On the other hand, many believe that Europe cannot take in more migrants, but what happens when migrants and refugees are at our doorstep? Can we continue to distinguish between migrants and refugees in the future?

Description: Most of the computer chips used in the EU are produced in China. Computer chips have become critical infrastructure in our lives and the world, as we know it depends on a steady supply of this technology. It has recently been discussed whether the EU should start producing these chips themselves to avoid dependence on China, as well as to being a technical supplier on this. What is the plan for European technological sovereignty? Is it satisfactory that the EU is dependent on the Chinese on such crucial matters? Can we continue to allow this or should Europe go through with plans that limit the dependence on Chinese supplies? What would happen if Europe ends cooperation and dependence on China in terms of delivering technical equipment?

Description: Gender equality remains a big issue across the world, also in Europe, as a way to combat this inequality in terms of the job market, representation on boards and so on, gender quotas have been suggested but is this the way towards equality? Are quotas the way forward towards securing gender equality in Europa or will it have consequences for the competences in our societies? Are our democracies in danger if we no longer have a say in who is elected in a democratic process, because quotas overrule the decision or are quotas the best way to ensure that women and minorities have a better say in decision-making?

Or should Europe continue to punish Russia and the Russian people for its crimes on the Ukrainian people and its self-determination? Will we have Russia-phobia as a result of the war in the future? Will we punish citizens/civilians for the acts of their governments/regimes? What have we learned from past wars, such as WWII? Is there a future for Wandel durch Handel?

Description: The use of artificial intelligence contains practical challenges and ethical dilemmas, which companies must learn to navigate in as well as setting new requirements for the use of technology by companies. Algorithms are already said to be able to identify the best candidates for a job, assist doctors to establish medical diagnoses or help lawyers before the courts. Artificial intelligence brings many new opportunities with it and might change the way we live our lives, but is the use of AI ethically permissible? How do we ensure that this technology lives up to ethical standards in society? Will it bring unforeseen opportunities? What are the human downsides? Will it cost jobs?

Description: Advances in digital technology lead to many companies having a large portion of personal data. Advances within both medicine and technology means that we now know much more about patients, as these data are often stored in journals. There is also a big market for health apps for smartphones used to e.g. tracking your period as well as having medical journals directly on your phone. What happens to the data shared in these apps, and how can such data be beneficial to improving health in Europe? It is believed that the knowledge gained from personal data as well as data in medical journals can contribute to avoiding future health crises, but how? What is health data and how can it be used by doctors and researchers? But what data should governments, companies and researchers be allowed to use? How do we avoid that personal data is not misused and given away to third-party stakeholders? Are there any downsides to having all this data? What about privacy concerns?

Description: With this event we aim to discuss the opportunities of using cohesion funding to support new initiatives that promotes a circular and green economy and a socially fair green transition for the citizens while constructively touching upon barriers or experienced gaps in the structure of the funding processes. The transition towards climate neutrality cannot be achieved through environmental policies alone. Luckily, EU cohesion policy, which accounts for about one third of the EU budget, supports this process through country-specific investment strategies pinned to the European Green Deal ensuring that projects in alle EU regions are aligned with action on climate. In addition to the traditional cohesion policy funds (European Regional Development Fund, Cohesion Fund and European Social Fund Plus), the newly created Just Transition Fund will support the transition in regions relying on fossil fuels and high-emissions industries over the period of 2021-2027 helping the regions most affected by the green transition. With this event, we wish to learn from various current and former cohesion supported projects while exploring opportunities for green transition in Danish regions and reflecting on the priorities in the cohesion policy as they are outlined in for the period 2021-2027. The event will consist of a panel debate with relevant stakeholders followed by an interactive feature leading to a networking session where participants will be able to taste the outcomes of cohesion supported projects.

Description: We build a lot, and we use concrete, wood and other resources to do so. Often we use new materials. The construction sector, with its large resource consumption and climate footprint, is also of decisive importance for the economy, workplaces and citizens' quality of life. The new Bauhaus initiative inspires people from across Europe to think in new and innovative ways to ensure a more climate-friendly approach to the building sector. Who has the responsibility for making sure that the climate footprint is reduced? Is it the building sector, governments, companies or homeowners? What is the best way to reduce the climate footprint from the building sector? What will a Bauhaus house look like? How do we build better houses, so that we use less energy in 鈥榟ealthier鈥 buildings? Should there be more attention to using less energy, having more plants/green gardens, isolation of our houses etc.? How do we recycle more within the building sector?

Description: In the Nordic countries we have a strong tradition for negotiating wages between employers and employees with the help of unions. However throughout Europe, the minimum wages in many are protected by law. With the EU鈥檚 new Minimum Wage Directive the debate on who gets to decide on wages is in full flourish, should EU legislation change the way we negotiate salaries? and what about the Nordic Model, is there room for that alongside an established minimum wage? What are the experiences from other countries regarding minimum wages? Why does the Nordic Model not work in other countries?

Description: Bjonko Stosic is a Danish-Macedonian musician, producer, and composer, and one of Northern Europe鈥檚 absolute best Balkan beats artists. Bjonko represents a new style within the Balkan music tradition, a style which fuses current rhythmic music with Macedonian improvisation. Bjonko and his band tour festivals and venues all around the world, while still performing at traditional local weddings.

Bjonko Stosic was born and raised in Copenhagen but is descended from a family of musicians from the city of Bitola in Macedonia. Playing the clarinet and the saxophone, Bjonko has developed a unique style, which he has performed with at festivals such as SPOT, Northside, and Smukfest. His empathetic performances have also won him a Danish Music Award in 2015 for 鈥淒anish World Live Name of the Year鈥. Bjonko performs in a variety of band constellations and have collaborated with artists and bands across musical genres, such as Fallulah, Klamfyr, Jokeren, Jooks and Illusionisten.

Description: When Political Festival of Europe will be hosting Liga Latina, with Mike Hecchi leading, we are going to be experiencing Nordic, Latin and Cuban music at its best. Liga Latina have since the release of their album, by the same name, collected five-star reviews as well as airtime on radio channels across the world, and is considered a downright supergroup within the rhythmic Caribbean and Latin-American genres. Cuban and Latin jazz and folk music is one long love story between the Spanish guitar and the African drum. Liga Latina is a collective of driven musicians for whom it is a passion to convey this cultural heritage of music and art forms on a higher artistic level. A dedicated and respectful relationship with the Latin/Cuban songbook, highly praised self-composed works, and an unmatched live performance have all made them fan favorites. Liga Latina have in later years taken audiences by storm at both jazz and world festivals, as well as smaller venues across the country.
Line up is Mike Hecchi 鈥 vocals, nylon guitars, percussion, Theo Hjorth 鈥 piano, percussion, Michell Boysen 鈥 double bass, Rune Krogshede 鈥 trumpet, flugelhorn, Bo 鈥橞oJo鈥 Johansen 鈥 percussion.

Description: When Swedish Finnegan鈥檚 Hell seizes the stage as the final act of Friday鈥檚 musical lineup, you will be in for a Celtic folk-rock concert of the heavy-metal kind. The Celtic punk band Finnegan鈥檚 Hell have prepared a mad mix of accordion, banjo, and scream choir, which is guaranteed to get a party started. Drunken ballads, country, and metal are mixed and matched in unholy combinations reminiscent of bands such as The Ramones or Flogging Molly and resulting in one of the most entertaining and intense live experiences of our times. Their latest album 鈥淲ork Is the Curse of the Drinking Class鈥 perfectly frames Finnegan鈥檚 Hell鈥檚 captivating universe. It will be impossible to stand still or avoid cracking a smile when the band enters the stage. You might be tempted to describe them as a potent heavy or hard rock band, but their roots in Scotch-Irish and Celtic folk traditions are clear. Ear plugs might come in handy!

Description: Europe is the front-runner in many areas related to science and education. Moreover, due to the free movement in the EU companies have the possibility to attract qualified workers from across Europe. However, this also means that some countries and regions in Europe might suffer from so-called 鈥榖rain-drain鈥, where people move to other areas in Europe for better education opportunities, jobs as well as financial security. So how does the EU ensure a positive use of talents and mobility all over Europe? Do we need better education opportunities across the union? How can we ensure better job possibilities and fair pay across the union? How can talents themselves help create jobs in the outskirts of Europe? Are talents supported enough across Europe? How can we ensure talent development and mobility from outside of the European Union?

How can we secure the fishing industry in terms of regulations, safety, rules and sustainability? How do we secure the wellbeing of the ocean and the wellbeing of the fish, while also still focusing on the fishing industry? Should there, for instance, be surveillance on boats to secure the industry, or are fishing quotas still the way to go?

Description: In a world where sustainable food production is the way forward, we have to consider what the costs of reliable/sustainable farming are for our eating habits as well as for the way we produce food. Are there types of food that we should ban and start living without because of long transport routes and the seasons? Are there some foods we should eat more of? Is the consumption of locally sourced produce the only way forward or is there another way of ensuring global food availability and security?

Description: In the era of rising climate consciousness amongst consumers, we are left to wonder if this might affect trading patterns, imports and exports across the world. We know that transport is a big source of carbon emissions. Should we continue to import products through world wide free trade or should we strive to buy products locally to ensure a climate friendly and sustainable approach? What will happen to products that can be purchased rather cheaply, e.g. from China - can the European market match the cheaper products, or will European consumers be obliged to buy more expensive ones? Will this limit the rights and opportunities that we have as consumers? In the era and name of climate consciousness, can we even defend buying products from across the world?

Organised by: Political Festival of Europe

Description: One of the biggest climate issues comes from food production, as modern agriculture and food production have made it possible to feed far more people than previously. Modern developments within transport and food storage have made us accustomed to foods that are neither local nor in season, meaning that food is often transported to the consumers from far away. It is however problematic that 30% of human emissions of greenhouse gases occur in food production. Food waste alone is also a source of CO2 emissions. We also use a lot of antibiotics in the production of food, the animals have their own climate footprint and the transportation of food itself is a problem. If we are to avoid eating meat in the future, how can this be carried out? How long do we need to reorganise our food production and what will farming look like in the future? Does conventional food production even stand a chance in the future? What are the current challenges in making food production green? Should we change the way we live and eat? And how do we do that? What can the EU do to incite more sustainable food production?

Description: The EU countries have agreed upon climate neutrality in 2050. Some countries are further along in the transition than others in terms of CO2 emissions in e.g. energy supply. E.g. Denmark has a large supply of energy from wind turbines where Poland gets its majority of energy from burning coal. How do we ensure a joint commitment across Europe to ensure the green transition, and work towards climate neutrality, when we know that some countries are faced with bigger obstacles than others in achieving a greener future? How can countries help each other in this transition? What are the current socio-economic challenges in the green transition in the EU? How do we ensure economic and social balance in the EU in the green transition?

Description: Stress is a significant problem in modern workplaces. It represents about half of all lost working days and 80 % of all mangers in EU member states are worried about work-related stress. Up until now information and campaigns have been a central part of the EU initiatives for a better psychosocial working environment. How can EU-regulation of psycho-social health prevent stress and burn-out? The European Union has made huge progress when it comes to regulating traditional occupation health and safety issues such as chemical safety, accident prevention and exposure to biological agents. During this debate we would like to discuss how a common European effort can prevent stress and psychosocial risk at the workplace.

Description: Russian invasion and the military aggression in Ukraine, as well as consequent sanctions imposed on Russia have created new challenges with regard to the energy security of the European Union and led to the immense global energy crises.

But in a world on fire, with conflict and war on European territory for the first time in 70 years, the debate on the EU has changed. With the removal of the opt-out on Defence in June 2022 which was approved by a significant majority of the Danes, the support for the European Union has improved substantially. Historically, Danish youth has been more positive towards the EU than the rest of the population. On this backdrop, PlanB酶rnefonden has invited four young Danes in for a conversation on how to shape the EU to fit the needs of tomorrow 鈥 and the next generation? In a world on fire, how must EU prioritize its means? What policies and initiatives are crucial to work collaboratively on? And where lies the largest challenges for EU in the future? And how do we ensure the growing support to the EU?

Description: The Copenhagen Criteria are determining factors for the membership criterias, thus being a decisive factor for whether candidate countries can join the European Union. Given the current geopolitical crisis, are the Copenhagen Criteria still relevant, or is the time ripe for revision? Why are the Copenhagen Criteria still in force as well as important for the membership admittance? Should we be stricter or more lenient with membership requirements? Should there be a fast track admittance procedure for countries in need, such as Ukraine?

Description: The role of Frontex has grown massively over the past few years as the EU鈥檚 primary action force to secure the borders of the EU, which has raised the question of whether the EU is building a 鈥淔ort Europe鈥 to secure its borders. Is it necessary for the EU to continue with Frontex and to allow the action force great power? Why can the EU member states not handle the security issues themselves, e.g. through border control? What is the future of Frontex? - must it be bigger, smaller etc. ? Should it evolve into an actual army? Is it morally permissible that the Frontex hinder migrants' access to the EU?

Description: The Russian aggression in Ukraine has made the discussion of the EU military and security policy more relevant than ever. But how shall the EU act in different situations and how do we protect EU land and sovereignty? Will it be necessary for the EU to have its own military forces, and who would be in charge of deciding on EU military cooperation? Or should NATO still be the primary security cooperation in Europe? In the EU, six member countries are not a part of the NATO alliance - how should the EU act if one of these countries are invaded? What about the non-EU countries in Europe, should they be under the same protection as EU member states?

But what role should the EU have when we talk about health? And how should health be considered in the Europe of the future? Should health be a national or common issue, where we together in Europe help strengthen health across the continent? If so, how can this be carried out and facilitated so that European citizens have the same health standards?

Description: More and more people deal with mental health issues - it is becoming an increasing issue among young people. As a society, what are we doing right and wrong when it comes to helping our younger generation.Are we nursing our children and youth into mental health crises or are we as a society not efficient in helping out the younger generation in tackling their problems? Should we be better at discovering and preventing mental health illnesses, e.g. from family medical records? Should regulators do more to tackle mental health issues? Should more money be invested in the health sector to fight mental health issues? How can we be more open as a society in discussing mental health issues, and should we?

Description: Strong health systems are key to tackling pandemics such as COVID-19. Through direct financial support, the EU helps strengthen health systems across Africa, building up countries鈥 capacities to deliver vital health services to their citizens. But what role should the EU acquire in ensuring and improving health in Africa? How can the EU be involved in securing health standards in Africa in other ways than by contributing to this financially? Is there a need for European countries to be engaged in an additional way? Should health related matters be a sovereign issue and influenced by African countries only or should the EU be more involved in securing health standards on the African continent? Is there a need for European countries to be a more active player, and if so, how should Europe be involved in the most appropriate way?

Description: Europe is facing serious healthcare challenges and the COVID-19 pandemic has shown the importance of coordinating health research and innovation among European countries. In recent years, we have seen higher longevity, but also a rise in lifestyle diseases. This along with the risk of epidemics and pandemics means that our health system will be put under pressure in the future. Is investment in research the tool to combat this? and how do we best target our spending? Is investing in health research also an investment in a better future for European citizens? If so, should investment come from the EU, nation states in Europe, companies or from the research institutions themselves? What can we learn from other continents when it comes to investment in health research? Are we outcompeted by the big American health conglomerates or can we learn how to invest in health?

Description: 鈥淪ultanen Fra Ali Babas Karavane鈥, or 鈥淭he Sultan from Ali Babas Caravan鈥, is one of Denmark鈥檚 most experienced and popular magicians and childrens鈥 entertainers.

Both children and adults are incorporated in the show 鈥 participating loudly as they remain deeply involved throughout鈥
The show: The Sultan鈥檚 daughter, Princess Emerald, is soon grown and the Sultan, the great Alkassani, wants her married to a rich prince, but the princess would rather marry someone who treats animals well. From here an exciting and whimsical story unfolds, where the princess鈥 rich and powerful father travels around the world on his flying carpet to find the right prince for his daughter. A fairytale-esque show that takes place within a comfortable oriental atmosphere, as if taken straight from One Thousand and One Nights 鈥 the scent of incense and myrrh activating all senses. The show is carried out using authentic scenography with genuine carpets, gold, and gems, and whatever else belongs in an oriental fairytale.

Description: The Turkish singer Mizgin stands stronger than ever, and brings energy, power, charisma, and wonderful songs, all backed up by a great band. She is well known and loved by her Kurdish audience at home, but also by a growing Western audience, for her unique voice and charismatic stage performance. Her Danish audience will recognize her from performances at a variety of festivals and venues, including Aarhus Festuge, Kulturm酶de Mors, Klaverfabrikken and more. Aside from singing, Mizgin also plays the Turkish string instrument saz / baglama. With her on stage is her husband Anders Honor茅, who plays the saxophone, the Indian Nantha Kumar from Madrid playing tabla, and Bulgarian Enis Ahmed on Bulgarian violin. Although Mizgin and her band plays music rooted in Kurdish traditions, their performance does take a great deal of inspiration from rock and roll.

Description: The magnificent ensemble Calibut Band, with George Mihalache in front, unites Romanian folk and gypsy music with wondrous jazz in a lightning quick, but also deeply nuanced soundscape. George Mihalache was born in Romania and grew up in a family of Romanian minstrels, the so called 禄lautari芦, whose musical heritage goes back hundreds of years. Following in the footsteps of his predecessors, Mihalache learned to play Romanian folk music by ear, taught to him by his grandfather. Today, George Mihalache is a virtuoso Cimbalom musician 鈥 the standing string instrument whose unique sound is conjured by beating two sticks against metal strings 鈥 what is also called a 鈥渉akkebr忙t鈥 in Danish.
The fact that George Mihalaches family was very open to Western music is clearly heard in his musical expression. George confronts the traditional notion of Romanian folk music, with its lightning quick melodies and unique scales, from new and creative angles. The jazz especially stands out with its deep and nuanced soundscape in what he himself calls 禄lautari jazz芦. Calibut Band has perfected the mixing of gypsy music with jazz.
With him on stage George has the Tyrkish-Swedish trumpeter Ruhi Denise Erdogan, the Dane Simon Don Eriksen on accordion, as well as the Danish female jazz double bass player Ida Hvid. In 2015, Calibut Band released their highly acclaimed debut 禄Travelers芦 of which the Danish music magazine Gaffa wrote 鈥淎 fabulous orchestra has delivered their debut, and a magnificent one at that. It is a music that has its own cinematic character, as if we were at a cowboy meet-up somewhere in Transylvania, with everyone shooting into the air.鈥

Description:
EU and Danish legislations are strongly interlinked: EU policy sets the conditions for Danish domestic legislation, and Danish national policies have an impact in our common European laws.

As EU legislation has a great importance in the daily lives of Danish citizens, it is important for Denmark to be able to actively influence future EU legislation at an early stage, as any failure to do so would diminish Danish citizen鈥檚 voices in Europe. The Danish model was in the past renowned for its efficiency of doing so. However, recent studies show that the Danish Parliament has fallen behind several other national parliaments when it comes to their capacity to engage in European decision-making. This is an especially relevant issue, as it comes in a period under which the importance of EU legislation for Danish citizens has increased.

Taking their point of departure in this situation, a panel consisting of Danish members of Parliament and EU Youth Delegates will discuss how the Danish Parliament can increase its influence on decisions made in the EU. What concrete changes are needed for Danish interests to be heard - earlier and louder? How can the European affairs Committee reform itself to gain greater influence on EU legislation? How can young people concretely be included into these discussions?

Description:
Velkommen til en time med sang, stilhed, lys og b酶n. Taiz茅-refleksion er en meditativ gudstjeneste, hvor det b忙rende er Taiz茅-sangene, der er korte vers, der gentages flere gange.
Sangene kommer fra det kirkelige f忙llesskab i Taiz茅 i Bourgogne i hjertet af Europa. Mere end 100.000 is忙r unge mennesker fra hele verden bes酶ger hvert 氓r Taiz茅 og er en del af b氓de b酶ns- og arbejdsf忙llesskabet. Til dagligt bor der 100 br酶dre (munke) fra 25 forskellige lande. Helt centralt for livet i Taiz茅 er 酶nsket om fred og forsoning p氓 tv忙rs af trosretninger. Broder Roger skabte s氓ledes dette f忙llesskab i skyggen af Anden Verdenskrig og skjulte til at begynde med forfulgte j酶der p氓 stedet. Det har pr忙get 氓nden p氓 stedet siden da.
Det musikalske sprog i de s忙rlige Taize-sange forener b氓de gamle og nye stilarter og bygger p氓 simpel flerstemmighed, som et let at l忙卢re. Sangene gentages mange gange efter hinanden for at skabe en s忙rlig meditativ tilstand og stemning, hvor ord og tanker smelter sammen for den enkelte deltager. Gudstjenesten er 氓ben for alle og varer ca. 50 minutter.

Medvirkende:
Gudstjenesten er tv忙rkirkelig og ledes af pr忙st Rune Funch (Baptistkirken i Lyngby) og sognepr忙st Inge Marie Kirketerp Hansen (Gjellerup Kirke). Begge pr忙ster har lang erfaring med at lede Taiz茅-gudstjenester.

Description: Russia's horrible war in Ukraine, combined with uncertain political conditions in the United States, have given Europe a larger part to play geopolitically. While Denmark has voted to repeal its defense opt-out through a referendum, other areas of European collaboration remain controversial, such as financial politics and the migration issue. Is it even possible to solve such large political questions at a national level? Which role can the EU play? Does the EU need more competences in areas such as finance or defense policy?

Experience an evocative concert with both known and lesser-known songs spanning from The Dubliners to Runrig 鈥 and anything in between.

Description: The Courettes is an explosive rock duo from Denmark and Brazil, who has discovered the perfect mix of garage rock n鈥 roll, 60鈥檚 girl鈥檚 pop, wall of sound, surf music and doo-wop. Like a meeting between The Ronettes and The Ramones at a wild party in the echo chamber of the Gold Star studios. Already praised by the biggest music magazines in the world, the band signed with the legendary British record company Damaged Goods Records in 2020, next to top international rock icons such as Buzzcocks, Manic Street Preachers, Atari Teenage Riot, New Bomb Turks, Amyl and The Sniffers, Billy Childish, Captain Sensible and many more. Their third album 鈥淏ack in Mono鈥 was released in the fall of 2021 and is an incredible milestone in their career. The album presents a band at peak performance, shows incredible songwriting skills, and a broader nuance, influence, and sound quality to their garage rock recipe. The Courettes is one of the hardest working bands within European rock n鈥 roll, and their reputation is accurate. They deliver high-speed, energetic performances everywhere, and have played in 15 countries in Europe as well as in Brazil. The duo consists of Flavia Couri (Vocals/Guitar) and Martin Couri (Drums/Vocals).

Description: A tribute to Bob Marley, his music, lyrics, and the legendary Roots Rock Reggae. Atmosphere reminiscing a gentle salty breezy, rocking vibrations like waves breaking on a sandy beach, and the warmth of a pulsating insistence on dance and cohesion will be emanating from the loudspeakers along with songs of freedom, love, tolerance, and respect. Ditte Fredsgaard Strange will be at the front, with her strong vocals. She interprets the songs with love for the music and the messages found in Marley鈥檚 lyrics. Many experienced and practiced musicians 鈥 all with a great love for the original reggae 鈥 make up Denmark鈥檚 first dedicated Bob Marley tribute orchestra.
One Love Marley Band aims for original expression, authentic riffs, and the songs鈥 original signatures. A fusion of pulsating cohesion and musical meditation in a meaningful lyrical universe. A collective presence in an at the same time static, vibrating, energetic, calm, floating and immersive universe. This is music with the ability to unify and spread important messages; the essence of reggae music. Bob Marley can be compared to great personalities of freedom and peace such as Martin Luther King, Gandhi, and John Lennon. He鈥檚 the symbol of strong political activism, spiritual wisdom, and great human experience. Bob Marley鈥檚 strong library of songs is alive and deserves recognition, which is the clear vision of One Love Marley Band, who brings his songs and music to the great stages.

Description: The green transition and the transition to a circular economy requires new, smarter, and greener logistics and infrastructure solutions. At the same time, many manufacturing companies are looking for geographical areas that offer opportunities for value chain cooperation and stronger connection to knowledge-based environments for sustainable business innovation. Many European and Danish ports have launched collaborative projects that can contribute to both energy- and resource efficiency. But is this enough or should ports rethink their contribution to the green transition and circular economy? How do ports see their own role in the green transition? What is their role in regard to market organization, and how do they contribute to the development and establishment of the critical infrastructure? How do ports facilitate collaborations across companies and stakeholders? How do ports ensure cooperation across EU and Denmark to maintain their role as important logistical hub and laboratory for sustainable solutions and technologies?

Description: In 2019 the report "New Plastics Economy" showed, that there are clear benefits, if Denmark should choose to adopt it: The full economic potential of the plastics waste stream could save Denmark more than DKK 1.6 billion a year. However, it also showed that Denmark is one-third of the way toward reaching its 2025 and 2030 EU recycling obligations for plastics packaging waste. This year a new survey conducted by the Danish Academy of Technical Sciences among 300 small of medium sized Danish companies shows that most have just started their journey and have done so with a quite limited scope. The question remains how do we succeed with sustainability and how do we meet the ambitious goals at the national level?

Description: In 2017 the EU created The European Pillar of Social Rights, which intended to launch comprehensive reforms of the European labor markets and social systems. Traditionally this is an area the member states controlled themselves. But should social issues be an EU matter, or should the member states still be able to negotiate and regulate the social systems in their countries, e.g. for maternity leave and wages? What are the benefits and concerns of having the EU negotiating the social systems - does one outweigh the other? Can we expect the EU to get more involved in social systems of the member states in the future - what are the next stages for social policies in the EU?

Description: Europeans are living longer and longer, while fewer are being born, meaning there will be less to care for the many in the future. Both in regards to physically caring for the eldery, the sick and the young, but also in regards to the amount of people contributing to paying taxes. How do we mitigate the upcoming challenges that this will bring about for Europe? How do we secure the continuation of reproduction in Europe? Is encouraging women to have more children the way forward, or would this be a stepback in regards to gender equality, where women have fought for their place in society? Can we secure even more parental leave for men as a benefit? Would we have to be more open to migration into the EU in order to maintain a sizable workforce? Should our job market be more flexible in trying to maintain the older generation on the labour market, or would this be troublesome for elderly as well people with both mental and physical difficulties? Should we be better at activating the youth in the labour market?

Description: We have all been told that plastic is bad for the environment, meaning that European industries have been expected to change to the new agenda of focusing on recycling plastic. How can Europe use plastic differently and in a better way? Must we encourage each other to focus on plastic recycling on a European scale and help countries in ensuring this transformation? How much public attention and resources should be devoted to plastic recycling when there are other sources of CO2 emissions? Does it really make sense that consumers have to deal with paper straws for their juice boxes when big business emissions and transportation with planes and cars are still happening? Are the actions taken against single use plastic mainly for show, or does it really make a change for the environment? Should the focus be on removing plastic from the market or on the recycling of plastic?

Description: Europe is standing in front of an energy crisis, rising inflation, decreasing purchasing power and a risk of economic recession. For these reasons, some European and national politicians are now talking about putting the green transition of Europe on halt, because it will be too big an economic burden and result in too many uncertainties on the shoulders of our companies and societies in such times of crisis. With this debate we want to turn the arguments around and to discuss whether we can turn the green transition of Europe into new business and job opportunities, - and what it would take to do so?

Description: Circular economy was a hot topic 5-10 years ago. It was determined that by adopting the 鈥榗radle-to-cradle鈥 philosophy EU-wide the GDP of the EU would rise 7% due to smart use of resources. If we continue to use resources as we do now, we will need three Earths from 2050. We will have to face the fact that our 'use and throw away' culture needs to change. A circular economy will cut CO2 emissions, while at the same time stimulating economic growth and creating new job opportunities. What is the status of the circular economy? And are we moving at the right pace? What role can regulators play in the future of the circular economy?

The first step was to pull out American forces from Afghanistan which quickly led to the Taliban taking over most of the Afghan territory. With the latest development with the war in Eastern Europe, has the US changed its strategy in the European area?

Description: In the next decades we expect to see a rise in the number of people being considered refugees. The refugees will often endure long travels and other hardships in order to reach Europe. For example, along the travels many women experience rape, others die while travelling and others are subjected to torture from prison and border guards. How do we ensure that human rights for refugees are protected across borders even if Europe does not wish to welcome these people to the continent? Are we morally obliged to ensure human rights on other continents and in areas with refugees? Can Europe act in a different way to ensure this and is it the duty of European countries?

Description:
鈥淚 could have become a priest, and if so I could have helped believers die. Instead, I chose to help non-believers live鈥, is what Robert Schumann supposedly said. He is known as Europe鈥檚 father, and was a central figure in the creation of the Coal and Steel Union and in the phrasing og the Rome-treaty. In current years, he鈥檚 perceived as something like a saint in the Catholic Church. Not only was he a driving force behind the development of the institutional Europe and EU, he was also the primary thinker behind the work for peace and unity between European nations and their inhabitants.
鈥℉ow is Europe鈥檚 Christian heritage coming along, however? What does that heritage mean for the integration of the European Project in the years following Brexit and the increasingly undemocratic behaviour of Poland and Hungary? What can we use Schumann鈥檚 heritage for in the wake of the war in Ukraine, and do the churches even have a meaningful voice when discussing Europe today? Do we still have community and unity in sight, or have such aims been replaced by military armament and continuing demands for economic growth?

Description: In many ways the EU has missed out on the first digital evolution of business, as the majority of the big companies are either in the US or in Asia. A number of leading digital technology companies today are based in the United States or China. The EU, it seems, has fallen behind in the digital services transformation race but it might be able to take up leading positions in new races.A recent issue is for example the use and production of computer chips, which the world highly needs, but should the EU start producing these chips themselves and what will this do for the EU labour market? Is the EU prepared for the new digital age? What are the current and future challenges? How do we as a society create the means to be leading in the digital race?

Suddenly the European countries were faced with new dilemmas, such as lockdowns, missing health equipment, and quick developments and distributions of vaccines. European countries acted in very different ways when approaching the crisis, including carrying out lockdowns. Should there have been more European coordination in terms of lockdowns and distributions of vaccines? In the aftermath of Covid-19, what has Europe learned from the crisis and how should a new, potential crisis be handled? Is Europe now better prepared for future pandemics?

Description: Cybercrime is on the rise, and the nature and complexity of attacks are constantly evolving with criminals relying upon newly sophisticated means of attack to go under the radar and compromise the networks of unsuspecting users. In recent years we have seen an increase in the digital transformation of the economy and society and provided both new opportunities and challenges. As cyberspace itself is interconnected and the digital and physical worlds increasingly intertwine, new dangers will emerge. Although digitization offers enormous opportunities and solutions to many of the challenges facing Europe, it also exposes society and citizens to cyber threats. So how do the EU ensure that society can keep up with the digital development as well as preventing threats, such as hacking attacks? How can citizens feel safe when using the Internet in the future? What can we do to safeguard us against this in the future?

Description: Klaus Baba & Poul Ewald plays the blues as it sounds when you are from what some would call the fringes of Denmark. Klaus is from Svendborg and Poul from Skagen. Places where nothing is handed to you, and where there are no busses leaving every 5 minutes. On the other hand, these places offer a salty breeze in your hair and stories from real lives 鈥 with an edge to them. The duo has played together for more than 10 years. Klaus masters a uniquely personal guitar sound and vocals not to be found many other places in Denmark. When mixed with Poul鈥檚 virtuoso, expressive, and thoroughly musical harp play, a sound and a feeling arise which no other duo can conjure: it鈥檚 played in the moment, it鈥檚 raw and it鈥檚 over the edge! Their repertoire is based on Klaus鈥 self-composed work mixed with classic blues and Roost pieces. Klaus Baba Jensen has for the past 40 years travelled the roads as both a soloist and with his own band, in Denmark and in large parts of Europe. Poul Ewald has played the harp for the past 45 years and has since the 1980鈥檚 performed with names such as Lone Kellermann and Rockmaskinen as well as a plethora of national and international blues artists.

Description:
鈥滼eg kunne v忙re blevet pr忙st og havde i s氓 fald hjulpet de troende med at d酶. Jeg valgte i stedet at hj忙lpe de ikke-troende med at leve鈥, skal Robert Schumann have sagt. Han er kendt som Europas fader og var en central figur i dannelsen af Kul- og St氓lunionen og i formuleringen af Rom-traktaten. I disse 氓r n忙rmer han sig muligvis en helgenk氓ring i Den katolske Kirke. Ikke bare var en drivende kraft i udformningen af det institutionelle Europa og EU, men var hovedarkitekten i arbejdet for fred og forsoning mellem europ忙iske nationer og deres indbyggere.
Men hvordan g氓r det med Europas kristne arv? Hvad har den af betydning for integrationen af det europ忙iske projekt i tiden efter Brexit og med Polens og Ungarns stadig mere udemokratiske retning? Hvad kan vi bruge arven fra Schumann til i skyggen af krigen i Ukraine og har kirkerne overhovedet en stemme af betydning for Europa i dag? Er der stadig et blik for f忙llesskab og forsoning eller er de blevet erstattet af milit忙r oprustning og det evige krav om 酶konomisk v忙kst?
Det er nogle af de sp忙ndende sp酶rgsm氓l, der vil blive set n忙rmere p氓 i denne samtale mellem kirkelige repr忙sentanter og historikere.

Description: Anders Mikkelsen is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist from Northern Jutland 鈥 with more than 35 years鈥 worth of experience in the Danish music industry. He has performed everywhere in Denmark, either alone with his guitar, in the company of Anders Roland and Hans Graasvold, or as part of the band FolkZone. He is also known for his TV-performances in 鈥淪ommersang i Mariehaven鈥, and as a long-time host at Skagen Festival鈥檚 harbor stage. Anders has released a total of 5 albums in his own name, and is currently working on a handful of songs, which are later to become an album. He is a true troubadour, and a great story-telling singer. He is an expert at capturing his audience鈥檚 attention with his beautiful, relevant, entertaining, and powerful songs, which touch the heart and put the mind at work. As tradition among North Jutlandic folk singers now dictates, the stories and comments between songs make up an almost as important part of the show as the music itself. Throughout the years, he has developed a gift of sharing highly relatable and pertinent contemplations 鈥 Always in a humorous tongue in cheek manner. Anders Mikkelsen not only surpasses the stage with this performance; through his music and his sense of humor he reaches deeply into the souls of his listeners.

Organised by: Political Festival of Europe

Description: The Brexit debate has often been about the EU controlling UK matters and standards, thus 鈥渞egaining its national independence鈥. But now that the UK has left the EU, they have also left the EUs internal market, they have lost protection of goods, such as Scottish whiskey and other UK products which were protected under EU law. When being a part of a greater collaboration, even as a smaller country, one has the opportunities of engaging in markets as well as being ensured by common laws, which the UK will now no longer take part in. But what are the actual benefits and costs of Brexit for the UK? Can the rest of Europe benefit from Brexit, if so how? What will be the economic consequences for both the UK and EU? Will the UK be able to collaborate with the European market and other international markets in the future, or will the UK try to make it on its own? What impact will Brexit have for human rights in the UK, when the UK now has limited access to international justice and court systems. Is there a future for the UK?

Description: Brexit made many other nations discuss whether they too should exit the European Union. However, Brexit turned out to be a challenge in terms of the complexity, time, procedures and agreements with the EU. In a post-Brexit time, will we be seeing further disintegration of the EU with more fleeing member states trying to leave the EU, or will the aftermath of Brexit scare some of the anti-Europeans? What is the long term impact on the EU? What will it imply for the future of the European Union if more countries start seriously questioning and debating EU membership? Does Brexit kick off a multi-speed EU?

Description: We all know that technology is here to stay, but also know that there is a hefty carbon footprint associated with our tech usage. How can Europe through more digitalization support the green transition? Digitalization has been proclaimed to be a tool which can help us in the fight against climate change, that the green transition and digital transition are interconnected. But what about the downsides of digitalization, for instance, all the electronic waste and dumping of technology no longer in use, storage location for data serves, the carbon footprint of electronic usage and so on. Is digitalization the way to go in order to be climate-friendly? Can we develop and enhance the longevity of our tech equipment?

Description: Transport represents almost a quarter of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and is the main cause of air pollution in cities. Transportation is the second-largest source of emissions in the EU, with carbon dioxide making up the vast majority of GHG emissions from this sector. Have we done enough to reduce the transport emissions during the last years? How do we transport goods and persons in a more climate friendly manner? How do we speed up decarbonisation of the Transport sector, so that the impact will be as small as possible for the average consumer? Should we limit people's access to excessive planes and car transport?

Description: The European Youth Capital is an honor and opportunity bestowed upon cities around Europe that focuses on empowering the local youth population, in the major cities of Europe. But what does it mean for the cities, the citizens and especially the youths around Europe? What is it like to be a young European these days, and how should legislators accommodate youth? How can we collaborate across European borders to create better and improved conditions for the younger generation? How can we engage more young people in local politics in Europe, so that they too get to play an active part in our democracies?

Organised by: Political Festival of Europe

Description: Changes in behavior of households and consumers can result in large reductions of greenhouse gas emissions, which is needed to help combat climate change. We need the average citizen to take an active part in this by changing their behavior. How do we do that? - even if it will be expensive for poorer people. What role can regulators play, and should it be up to governments to stipulate the changes? In Denmark, for instance, citizens pay a deposite on their plastic bottles which is repaid when recycling the bottle. Is this a good way of motivating citizens to 鈥榗are鈥 about the climate? Should climate initiatives be profitable for the citizens? Should we be paid to be green? Or are there other ways of encouraging citizens to change their behavior in order to save the climate? Is it even up to the individual to make these changes?

Description: More and more journalists are being silenced, threatened and killed when they are doing their jobs.

What can we do to change that?

Description: The war in Ukraine horrifies everyone, but how could the security situation in Europe come so far? We have long seen ourselves as living on a peaceful continent but now our reality is turned upside down with an all out war in our backyard. Many experts even thought it impossible that Russia would ever invade Ukraine despite the many warning signs, such as the annexation of Crimea. Have European countries underestimated Russia as well as been blindly naive because of the dependence on Russian gas and other resources? Could and should we have done something different since the fall of the Soviet Union? Should Russia have remained on the 鈥榚nemy radar鈥, such as with some Middle-Eastern and Asian countries? Will and should Russia be on the 鈥榚nemy rader鈥 in the future?

Description: All over Europe we see groupings of people with their own culture, perhaps even their own language residing inside other countries with different cultures and different languages. Sometimes this is the case in border regions such as along the Danish-German border. How can we secure that the rights of these people are protected across borders? Should more regions and peoples be allowed greater autonomy, or are there other ways through which minorities can live peacefully in their residing countries? What have we learned from the Danish/German experience?
