The Embassy of Germany is participating in Political Festival of Europe

Political Festival of Europe will be held for the first time from 25 to 28 August 2022 Mariager, Northern Denmark. Here, visitors from all over Europe can explore a broad range of debates between European citizens and decisionmakers on some of the most pressing issues. Overarching themes that will shape the many activities of the Festival include business, climate, culture, democracy, foreign policy, health and technology.

At the Festival, organisations, businesses and institutions have the possibility to become an organising partner by hosting their own event(s) on the many theme stages or in their own activity tents. Among the many partners that have taken up the initiative, is the Embassy of Germany who will host a talk about Germany’s perspective on Europe’s strengths and challenges. Additionally, the German Ambassador to Denmark, Pascal Hector, is joining the debate programme as a speaker.

The Ambassador highlights:

It is only in togetherness, that we in Europe can maintain and strengthen our position in a world that is becoming increasingly unstable. This togetherness can be strengthened through open conversations and debates about the strengths, challenges and common future of Europe. Political Festival of Europe is a brilliant opportunity to build on the European idea about unity in diversity, and I look forward to experiencing this Festival.

We welcome the participation of the Embassy of Germany and Ambassador Pascal Hector as distinguished representatives of the country. The Embassy is among the many partners that have chosen to organise their own debate – herewith, they fundamentally contribute to the Festival’s rich and diverse debate programme. We look forward to an exciting conversation with Ambassador Pascal Hector,

Political Festival of Europe afvikles for første gang den 25.- 28. august 2022 i Mariager. Her vil publikum opleve en lang række af debatter mellem europæiske borgere og beslutningstagere om nogle af de mest presserende spørgsmål.

På Festivalen har organisationer, virksomheder og institutioner mulighed for at blive partner ved at afholde deres eget arrangement(er) på de mange temascener eller i deres egne stadepladser. Blandt de mange partnere, der deltager på Festivalen, er den Tyske Ambassade, som arrangerer en samtale om Tysklands syn på Europas styrker og udfordringer. Desuden deltager den tyske ambassadør i Denmark, Pascal Hector, også som speaker på Festivalens debatprogram.

Ambassadøren fremhæver:

Kun i fællesskab kan vi i Europa bibeholde og styrke vores position i en verden som bliver mere usikker. Dette fællesskab styrkes igennem åbne samtaler og debatter om Europas styrker, udfordringer og vores fælles fremtid. Political Festival of Europe er en fremragende mulighed for at fremme den europæiske tanke om enhed i mangfoldighed og jeg ser frem til at opleve denne Festival.

Vi glæder os over at den Tyske Ambassade og Ambassadøren Pascal Hector deltager som fremtrædende repræsentanter for landet. Ambassaden er blandt de partners, der har taget initiativ til at arrangere deres eget debat, og dermed er de med til at skabe Festivalens forskelligartede og mangfoldige debatprogram.
