Event description

Description

On 25 March 2017, 27 leaders of the European Union's Member States came together in Rome to celebrate 60 years since the signing of the Treaties of Rome. That alone is an achievement that many would have thought unthinkable, when the six founding Member States, one of which was The Netherlands, agreed on the Treaties in 1957.

But Rome was also the start of a new chapter. There are important challenges ahead of us, for our security, for the well-being of our people, for the role that Europe will need to play in an increasingly multipolar world. A united Europe at 27 needs to shape its own destiny and carve out a vision for its own future. In its White paper on the future of Europe, the European Commission sets out five possible scenarios and invites a broad debate across the continent on these and other options.

Secretary-General of the European Commission Alexander Italianer is coming to The Hague to engage with the audience in an open conversation: drawing lessons from the past, but above all looking ahead together with the audience.

This is one of a series of Citizens' Dialogues that the Commission is organising in all countries of the Union. These events give the general public an opportunity to discuss directly with European politicians about the kind of Europe they want to live in and their expectations for the future.
