As part of the contract between Inventio and the European Parliament for the 2019 European elections, the “Grand Debat Européen” was organized at the University of Louvain-La-Neuve in collaboration with the Kot Citoyen on November 20, 2018.
At this event speakers Marie Arena (PS / S & D), Philippe Lamberts (ECOLO / GREENS), Jean-Jacques Flahaux (MR International), Elise Degrave (Unamur) and Alfred Bernard (UCL) discussed two major themes: “Europe: Freedom or Security? (What to do with personal data?)” and “Science: When in doubt, abstain? (The precautionary principle in question)”. The Citizen Kot was able to interact with the speakers thanks to pitches prepared beforehand during a participatory workshop. The public also interacted through the application “Sli.do”.
The debate was moderated by Stephen Boucher.
