Addressing Europe's Unfinished Business

AEUB 2015

New reasons for hope in challenging times

Economic, social and environmental crises, overlaid by the increase in mass migration, have caused many Europeans to question the traditional narratives to which they look for identity and purpose. Changing times require each of us to relate differently to each other, and all who live in Europe, whatever their origin, will need to live differently. As we do this, hopeful new narratives will arise.

This conference will be an opportunity for people from across the continent to gather and listen to each other. We will reflect on the changes we each need to make, and common actions we can undertake, to help create a more secure, just and sustainable Europe.

This year's AEUB conference will be on the theme 'New reasons for hope in challenging times'.
