Panel debate: Perspectives on diversity

Advancing a Europe of gender, age and cultural diversity

On 29 November, the European Movement International is organising a panel debate in the context of the Women of Europe Awards 2017.

With the Awards being handed over to the winners in the evening that day, this afternoon debate allows for an in-depth discussion on the role of diversity in Europe’s future seen from different perspectives. While the discussion on Europe’s future is taking place all around the European Union, this event makes the case for an inclusive debate that engages all European citizens irrespective of their gender, age or cultural background.
