Professor Kalypso Nicolaidis of the ‘Future of Europe’ reflection group speaks about holding a few hundred of ‘agora’, the ancient Greece type of open debates, across Europe in the same week, “free of officialdom” as she insisted.
Probably those debates should be thematic, we discussed the Western Balkans accession as a possible subject.
I suggested something different – a Woodstock of Europeanism, that is, a big thematic annual gathering instead of many smaller. With countries competing to host the event, like they do for the Olympic games. And with broad subjects such as the European identity.
Other opinions are welcome.Georgi Gotev
