The Great European Debate

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.
