Idea pitch

"Franco-German dialogues for a stronger Europe" aim to create eight Franco-German space dialogues about the future of the EU integration within the ERASMUS generation, born just after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Where will your idea take place?

France, Germany

Why does Europe need your idea?

EuropaNova considers the Franco-German approach as essential to re-launch some burning EU topics as :

- The Energy Union,
- The battle for employement: youth and vocational training,
- The European Defence and the future of the Franco-German Brigade,
- Immigration and Integration,
- The digital economy,
- The end of enlargement?
- Diversity of cultures and languages in the EU
- A better integration of Eurozone.

These dialogues will be an ambitious and concrete initiative to gather representatives, students and members of the civil society from both sides of the Rhine and will recommand proposals to decision-makers regarding the future of Europe

What is your impact?

EuropaNova strongly considers the Franco-German dialogue as the core of the European integration. The objective of these eight dialogues should be a real opportunity to renew a deep and structured conversation between the two main countries of the Eurozone and playing an International role. Each generation needs to address the same issues to offer the most efficient solutions.
Our initiative will have an important impact quantitatively and qualitatively. Indeed, we target the participation of about 200 people by dialogues.
By the media and the social networks, the Franco-German hearings will have a viral impact in order to communicate about the importance and the role of the EU policies by the Franco-German aspect, the most visible and concrete for our citizens.

How do you get there?

A specific communication strategy will be implemented to promote each of the eight dialogues. This strategy will be based on traditional and modern networks and take place in three steps :

- Before the event:
Press release sent to our journalist database
