In 2017, the IJP, together with Stiftung Zukunft Berlin and the Walter Hallstein Institute of the Humboldt University in Berlin, initiated the project Wir sind Europa (We are Europe). The initiative, financed by the Mercator Foundation, intends to involve citizens in a conversation about Europe by organising debates, workshops and discussion groups in various cities and thus bringing citizens together with representatives from politics, culture and media.
IJP alumn from all over Europe contribute their journalistic expertise by conducting interviews, writing reports, producing video content and taking part in panel discussions and public events. IJP alumni are also actively involved in the Humboldt Speeches on Europe with high-ranking speakers from the worlds of politics and business, as well as in the annual Europe Speech on November 9 in Berlin.
Alumni of the IJP network who would like to get involved in this project, can contact the project managers via email.
