Tomorrow starts with the politics of today!  

2019 has been a pivotal year in determining the future path of Europe and the world. In the year 2049, from the impacts of the climate crisis, to new technologies and ways of living, our politics and society will be radically different to what we know now. 

Yet this future is still open and up to us to decide. As we stand on the precipice of the next decade, now is the time to reflect on the past years and look ahead to envisage, design and embrace a brighter future for all.  

In the spirit of the GEJ edition 2049: Open Future released earlier this year, the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung and the Green European Journal invite you to this exciting and interactive debate.  

We will bring together politicians with readers, activists and young people to discuss the future of Europe. In a year where young people have been standing up for their futures more than ever, we will delve beyond institutions and treaties to explore shared values and a collective vision for a hopeful horizon.  

The guest speakers will offer their own contributions to the discussion, with the opportunity for participants to give their takes and insights on what they imagine for a future Europe.
