12th State of Europe

"State of Europe" is an annual event on the future of Europe.

"State of Europe” is a statement by its highest representatives - the Presidents of the European Council, the European Commission, the European Parliament and the European Court of Justice - on the idea and the situation of Europe. It is held on the anniversary and at the location of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the symbol of the united Europe that has been possible since 1989. Previous speakers have recently included Ursula von der Leyen, Donald Tusk and David Sassoli. The process of European unification needs fixed points on which the ongoing work on a common Europe can be oriented. The European Union must face up to matters.


This year's event with Mr. Charles Michel, President of the European Council, will take place on Tuesday, November 9th 2021 at 7 pm as part of the “We are Europe!” Initiative.

The 12th "State of Europe" can be viewed live here:,
