All participants of FutureLab Europe have unique backgrounds. We have been involved in various projects, forums and exchanges all over Europe. Because of this vast pool of knowledge from different fields, our network is dynamic and well aware of what is happening in society. This leads to interesting debates, questions and ideas on how to shape the future Europe – the Europe beyond the current crisis. The dream of Europe bringing peace, prosperity and power is in a sense reality, although not for all the 500 million citizens. To bring Europe closer to the average person is a valuable endeavour, where FutureLab Europe can play a part.
