On 8 May, the eve of Europe day, the European Liberal Forum, the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, D66 and European partners jointly organise “Celebrating Europe”. The programme starts with an interactive session led by Jan Paternotte with panel members Giulio Ercolessi (Critica Liberale, Italy) and Igor Caldeira (Movimento Liberal Social, Portugal + Lymec) to give shape to a common European historical and cultural heritage.
After this session there are interviews in the ‘college-tour’ format. Emil Kirjas, SG of Liberal International and former European Affairs Minister of Macedonia, will interview economist Ewald Engelen, German-Belgian Culture Minister Isabelle Weykmans and last but not least Vice-President of the European Commission Neelie Kroes. The speakers programme is followed by a cultural and musical programme. You are welcome to join us in Maastricht! Participation is free of charge, kindly register via Facebook or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
