"Citizen Europe" - Screening & Debate at the Goethe-Institut

During a period of heightened concern about the future of the European Union, the Goethe-Institut Athens in cooperation with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung host an event on the expectations of young people about the EU.

It starts with the screening of the documentary “Citizen Europe”. The film captures the journeys of young participants of the EU-Erasmus programme, giving an insight into young people’s view on Europe.

The screening will be followed by a debate between university students over ‘whether six months of Erasmus should be compulsory for all Europeans’. It will be moderated by Caroline Macfarland, founder of Common Vision (CoVi), and journalist Damian Mac Con Uladh. The whole event will be streamed online via Facebook live, allowing audiences across Europe to follow the debate and vote for the winning team. The event is jointly organized by the Goethe-Institut, Moving Docs, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Athens, the Bodossaki Lectures on Demand, Debating Europe, the Institut Français Italia, the Embassy of Ireland in Greece, the Students Debating Group (University of Athens) and CineDoc/Anemon Productions.

Tuesday, 21/5, 19.30 - 21.30, Goethe-Institut Athens, Omirou 14 - 16
