Humans and their Natural Environment

Education and Culture
Date: Tuesday, 02 April 2019 18:00 - 20:30

Venue: HOUSE OF EUROPEAN HISTORY

Building on EUNIC Brussels previous initiatives “European Angst” and “Sweating for Europe”, the project, made of four panel discussions, has the ambition to rethink a social contract which would take into account the peculiarities of our world today.

The panel discussions aim to look to the future of Europe, using concepts of “protection” and “care” as a basis. The ambition of the project is to rethink the social contract, so that it no longer relies on the relationship between citizens and the state but goes beyond this by taking into account the different dimensions of life today and the crucial issues citizens are facing: security concerns versus personal privacy, of the Welfare state and social rights, building an inclusive society that goes beyond divisions, care for the aging population, opportunities for the next generation, and preservation of natural environment.

These issues have begun to be addressed at the European level: the 2018 European parliamentary agenda aims to “deliver new and more effective rights for citizens. It appears thus, of great importance to further enable discussions with academics and practitioners in order to bring critical and well informed opinion to a wider audience.

On 2nd April the last panel discussion will deal with the following topic: Humans and their natural environment. Our world has entered into the new era of “Anthropocene”: human activity leaves a real footprint on earth and is even now the main force that drives the evolution of our planet. How can we preserve sustainable living conditions for us and our environment?
