European Union – How to navigate towards a sustainable community of values?

Wednesday May 8, 2024

The Europe Day Committee Utrecht is organising the annual Europe Day Celebration on Wednesday, May 8, 2024. Here, you can learn more about the role the city of Utrecht has played in the development of Europe and what is now the European Union. In fact, Utrecht is home to a lot of heritage that recalls this development.

During a walk through Utrecht city centre, led by a city guide, we will visit some of these heritage points and discover the positive aspects and the frayed edges of Utrecht's role in Europe's development. Along the way, we will discuss these with each other. For instance, the stable peace since 1945 and a value-based community. But also about the blemishes and abrasive aspects of that history, such as slavery and value inequality.

In a subsequent plenary programme, we can increase our knowledge about Europe with a pub quiz. We will conclude with drinks.

This initiative is supported by the Utrecht Platform for Philosophy of Life and Religion (UPLR) and other religious and secular organisations.

Prior to the city walk, there will be the possibility, entirely optional, to attend an ecumenical Euro-vesper in the Dom Church.

Keep an eye on our website www.europadagutrecht.nl and our Facebook page.
