Invitation presentation programme ‘Europe Calling! – 25th anniversary Maastricht Treaty’
Tuesday 28 june, 03.00 PM, Provincial Government Building Maastricht (The Netherlands)
Dear media colleague,
We find ourselves at a crossroads in the long history of Europe. Twenty-five years after signing the Maastricht Treaty, EUROPE is more topical than ever. As capital of the European border region Limburg, Maastricht was the birthplace of the new Europe in 1991 and 1992 and is therefore the perfect location for hosting a dialogue on Europe.
‘Europe Calling!, Maastricht Treaty 25th Anniversary’ is an extensive and varied annual programme (2016–2017) that examines the past and present and looks forward to what the next twenty-five years holds for Europe. This programme includes two major events held on historic dates: a ‘Europe Calling!’ conference on 9 December 2016 and ‘Generation Maastricht: YO! Fest’, which will be attended more than 3,000 young people on 7 February 2017. Mayor of Maastricht Annemarie Penn-te Strake and Governor of the Province of Limburg Theo Bovens will present these and other programme components on 28 June.
