How to engage with Europe digitally: Lessons learnt and opportunities to seize
1 November 2021 @ 14:30–15:30
After more than a year of pandemic-related restrictions and experimenting with online and hybrid event formats, many organisations have developed new skills in bringing people together successfully in innovative ways. In this workshop, Studio Europa Maastricht invites regional, municipal and civil society representatives to share what they have learnt from their experiences during the past year. In an interactive setting, participants can exchange and discuss best practices of hybrid and online events organised to engage citizens in European affairs. What lessons have been learnt and what are the opportunities that can be seized in the future?
Studio Europa Maastricht (SEM) organises events year-round, bringing people together from all walks of life to discuss European cooperation and politics. In addition, SEM supports interdisciplinary research on European affairs by bringing researchers from different fields at Maastricht University together in a cross-faculty research agenda. SEM also promotes the Maastricht Treaty through its European Heritage Label and various programmes which present the Treaty’s history and current relevance to a broad audience.
