About the Tuesday Conversation

The Tuesday Conversation is an initiative by New Europeans and part of #EuropeFutureFringe, the network of activities and events taking place across Europe that are energizing the discussion about the #FutureofEurope ahead of the official conference about the Future of Europe.

Our guest speakers introduce a conversation amongst a small group of invited guests from different parts of Europe around our question of the week.

The conversation is live-streamed on Facebook and questions and comments are fed back into the conversation.
