Our first panel at #PPCBerlin is opening: "Youth Ideas: Shaping the Future of Europe", featuring contributions from:

We welcome Werner Hoyer, President of the @EIB, to open proceedings on our first panel, who uses the opportunity to highlight our partners in #PPCBerlin:

@EU_H2020 #EuropeforCitizens @MercatorDE @GermanyDiplo #InDivEU @TRACK_EUCO

"The Green Recovery is the right way forward for Europe for several reasons: fighting #ClimateChange is an obligation, 93% of people want it, it makes sense economically: this market will grow 10% every year"

Werner Hoyer from @EIB outlines the importance of #GreenRecovery
For more on the importance of Green Recovery, check out TEPSA's Recommendation to #EU2020DE: "Climate Change and Sustainability" with @gaby_um from @collegeofeurope

- Implement the European Green Deal
- Engage in Climate Diplomacy
- Push Forward the new EU Climate Law

We now welcome Axel Dittmann from @GermanyDiplo to take us through the main aims and challenges facing the upcoming German presidency #EU2020DE which starts in less than a week!

"The rotating Presidency lasts only for six months, so time is of the essence when important issues are on the table, we should act 'Together for Europe's Recovery'"

Axel Dittman from @GermanyDiplo walks us through the key message of #EU2020DE

"#COVID19 changed the world, so we had to rethink our Presidency: overcoming #coronavirus is now the centre of our Presidency, as is allowing the @EUCouncil to keep working well during the new normal, which #EU2020HR has done so well"

- Axel Dittmann from @GermanyDiplo

This from @NHelwig and Tuomas Iso-Markku from @FIIA_fi tackles the important issues facing the German Presidency #EU2020DE in light of #COVID19, check it out!


"#Brexit will be a priority: the UK should remain a key strategic partner, and with the British Government not seeking an extension to transition, the pressure is on to negotiate on our future relationship"

#EU2020DE supports @MichelBarnier and his team in negotiations

"The @EU_Commission will be publishing the first Rule of Law Report in September, which #EU2020DE looks forward to because it is one of the most central foundations of the EU"

Axel Dittmann signals specific interest in fighting for Rule of Law in Europe

For more on the Rule of Law, check out @HeinikoskiSaila's contribution to the Video Recommendations to #EU2020DE, which focusses on the Resilience of the EU's project, including upholding the Rule of Law⬇️

Axel Dittmann from @GermanyDiplo has highlighted so many priorities for #EU2020DE - #COVID19 is on the top of the agenda, but there is more, including enlargement with #Albania & #NorthMacedonia, #CoFoE, security & defence, and solidarity

After our keynote speech from Axel Dittmann, we welcome four @EngagEU_Project researchers, starting with Simon Happersberger, speaking on #Migration and #Asylum policy in the context of an ongoing #RefugeeCrisis at Europe's borders

Simon Happersberger from #EngagEUrCouncil highlights three recommendations:

1⃣End humanitarian emergency in the Mediterranean
2⃣Stop criminalisation of organisations than provide aid
3⃣Support local & regional coalitions of the willing

.@EngagEU_Project sends four representatives to #PPCBerlin's first panel on Youth Ideas: Shaping the #FutureOfEurope - this allows them to engage with Axel Dittmann of the German Federal Foreign Office @GermanyDiplo and push for their ideas to be implemented!

.@MasaOcvirk from #EngagEUrCouncil suggests three foreign policies to #EU2020DE:

- Introduce Qualified Majority Voting in Common Foreign and Security Policy
- Promote & Protect Europe's values & human rights globally
- Reform the EU Official Development Assistance (ODA)

Will #EU2020DE push for the introduction of QMV in matters of CFSP? Axel Dittmann believes it is important to think again about our ability to act in CFSP, and recognises that different Member States have different views, but confirms #EU2020DE will pursue the discussion

.@naumann_stephan from @EngageEUrCouncil calls for #ClimateActionNow:

- Introduce a real European Green Deal
- Support the use of a European rail system to combat emissions
- Ensure common, participatory solutions

"Despite the focus on #COVID19, we shouldn't lose sight on the existential crisis that is #ClimateChange

Axel Dittmann (@GermanyonBrexit) from @GermanyDiplo highlights the importance of finalising the European Climate Law

Implementing the EU Climate Law was one of the key TEPSA Recommendations on "Climate Change and Sustainability"


Now the fourth and final @EngagEU_Project speaker @JoaoNunoGomes presents their suggestions for the #FutureofEurope:

- Develop a unified political science education hub
- Create a European citizens assembly
- Create European-wide itinerant cultural events

After our presentations from Simon Happersberger, @MasaOcvirk, @naumann_stephan, and @JoaoNunoGomes from @EngagEU_Project, our moderator for this first panel - @FundaTekin17 from @IEP_Berlin - opens the floor up to questions

The value of #PPCBerlin is clear - and we're only one panel in!

@GermanyonBrexit from @GermanyDiplo was able to engage with our contributors from @EngagEU_Project, with questions from you our audience, and with experts from across Europe!

That's it for our 1st #PPCBerlin Panel!

#Zoom in at 14:00 CET for the #InDivEU Panel featuring

Christian Frommelt (@LieInstitut), @GermanyonBrexit (@GermanyDiplo), @BrigidLaffan (@EuropeanUni), Frank Schimmelfennig (@IEP_Berlin & @ETH_en), and @FundaTekin17 (@IEP_Berlin)
