Take the survey: How to talk about the societies we want to build in Europe

We believe there’s an appetite for change, and that finding new narratives is an important piece of the puzzle. Just as stories can create meaning for us as individuals and groups, narratives create meaning for entire societies. By understanding and working to shift these narratives, we can bring new worlds into being. We need new ways to talk about Europe. We can’t do it alone. Curious? Help us with your input!
