Towards a European 'Mienskip': A Public Debate about the Future of Citizens in Europe.

On 23 April, ECF was in Leeuwarden – the Cultural Capital of Europe in 2018 – for a discussion based on the New Pact for Europe's second report with local, national and European stakeholders, politicians, opinion makers, entrepreneurs and scientists.
