Towards A Competitive Europe

Germany’s leading media Der Tagesspiegel, DIE ZEIT, Handelsblatt and WirtschaftsWoche invite you to a joint annual kick-off event “Europe 2022” from February 7th  through 10th, 2022, where we want do discuss which challenges we need to tackle in Europe after the pandemic. The focus will be put on several questions: How can we strengthen our democracies? How can the digitalization be accelerated and the continent’s digital sovereignty be achieved? How can the European single market be enhanced and – with the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow only a few months away – how can we reach our goals to protect the climate? How can Europe find and strengthen its role in a constantly changing world order with a stronger China and changing international alliances?

With Europe 2022, we offer a participatory, digital European platform where we want to debate these important issues with dedicated Europeans.

On the occasion of the French Presidency in the EU Council, we have extended our main bases for the conference from Berlin with and additional studio set up in Paris. This will allow to also reach the French public – and other European participants.

Join us as we discuss with leading decision-makers from politics, business and academia how the European project can make economic and socio-political progress in 2022 and maintain its position in the world.

The hashtag for the event is #Europe20XX.
It is organized by Convent – an affiliate of the ZEIT Publishing Group.

We look forward to welcoming you as a participant in »Europe 2022« next year.
