European Blend

Who does it best?

EUROPEAN BLEND is the festival about the future of Europe and all things European in the 21st century. Why not learn from those who are already doing something well today?

The Europe United Society launches the EUROPEAN BLEND ideas and debate festival at the Kulturhaus Kosmos in Zurich, Switzerland.

Join us and discuss with leaders from politics, business, culture, science and civil society. Let's talk about ideas and concrete solutions to Europe's challenges. Who has the best approach? How can something be changed? Join the European debate. Take part in our public workshops. Be part of the EUROPEAN BLEND festival.

Europe is undergoing an epochal Zeitenwende. EUROPEAN BLEND's first edition thus deals with the European infrastructure ("European Railway"), the European contribution to global peacekeeping ("Peace and War Made in Europe") and the fundamental question of how Europe has to reposition itself after the Russian war of aggression on Ukraine (“Global Europe”).

EUROPEAN BLEND is a Swiss-Scandinavian initiative of the Europe United Society.

We are multilingual. All debates are simultaneously translated.
