Citizens’ Dialogue: Executive Vice-President Frans Timmermans and President of Estonia Kersti Kaljulaid hold public debate online

Tomorrow, with a view to the upcoming Europe Day, Executive Vice-President Frans Timmermans and Estonia’s President Kersti Kaljulaid will hold a public online debate on Europe’s defining moments. They will look at the current crisis as an essential test of solidarity between Member States and between citizens and how Europe can recover economically in a competitive, green and resilient manner and uphold the fundamental values that buttress our democracies. The Executive Vice-President and the President will take questions from an online audience about the current challenges we face, their concerns and their hopes for the future. The discussion will also cover how the EU and the Member States have managed the crisis so far and what it means for Europeans, partly in the context of the lessons learned from the economic crisis in 2008-2009. You can follow the debate live on the website of the European Commission Representation in Estonia or its Facebook page or watch via EbS and ask questions by attending the event either on the virtual stage (pre-registration needed) or via slido (instructions here).
