The New Narrative for Europe, launched in 2013, aims to give a voice to European citizens in shaping the future of Europe. The initiative is also designed to bring Europe closer to its citizens, reviving a "European" spirit based on Europe's core values of dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, and respect for human rights.

The first phase of the New Narrative was completed following the publication of the book "The Mind and Body of Europepdf Choose translations of the previous link  " and the Contour 7 debates.


On 9 February the European Commission will host an event to relaunch the New Narrative. It's open to anyone and participants can discuss some of the pressing issues facing Europe.

Registration for the event is now closed, but you can follow the event live through the European Youth Twitter.
