The Political Festival of Europe is a yearly democracy festival that aims to gather citizens of Europe over the course of four days to discuss politics and embrace Europe’s rich history and cultural heritage. The Political Festival of Europe takes place in a town called Mariager – also known as the city of roses – an old, idyllic medieval town with crooked houses, cobblestoned streets and timber framed houses. With a modest population of just over 2,500 inhabitants, Mariager town will soon become the place where European democracy will come to life gathering hundreds of thousands of Europeans who want in on the future of Europe. Our mission is to be a place of: Courage – where we dare discuss the future of Europe “Peoplelization” – where we build communities as well as celebrate, showcase, and spread insights to local, regional, and national cultures Inspiration – where we establish debates, dialogues, hearings, and citizen involvement Accessibility – where we create an informal environment for citizens, politicians, and business leaders to meet Anchoring – where we anchor and raise the importance of our democracy for the future of Europe at a local level  In line with our missions, our vision is to “peoplelize” European politics and become a platform, where we strengthen democracy and unity in Europe. We aspire to become the political Olympic Games, where everyone has the possibility of participating in creating the future of Europe. The COVID-19 pandemic has given us all the more reason to create a platform, where we together can discuss European politics and its future. A platform, where people actively can get involved in developing European democracy. The inspiration behind Political Festival of Europe comes from the Nordic tradition of folkemøder –  a concept we want to take to the next level and raise from national settings to a pan-European setting in order to discuss matters that influence everyone in Europe. What is a Folkemøde?  The Danish tradition of Folkemøde [Folk – people; møde – meeting] is a public meeting that dates back to 1839. It is a political event that gathers people with different political views and positions in the interest of democracy. A Folkemøde takes form of informal discussions and speeches across opinions and hierarchy that strengthens active involvement of all participants – every one has a say, every one is heard. After the concept faded away in the 1940s, neighboring Sweden’s own form of folkemøde – Almedalsveckan introduced in 1968 – became the inspiration and groundwork for Denmark to revive the concept on the island of Bornholm in 2011 with their very own annual Folkemøde. It took on popularity fairly fast and has generated thousands of national visitors ever since. So far held at national levels, we aim to expand this concept to the whole of Europe. Here is why. What the purpose of a Folkemøde? The Danish model of Folkemøde is the cornerstone for democracy and pays tribute to the community. The foundation of a Folkemøde lies in dismantling barriers between citizens, politicians and decision-makers in order to bring politics closer to the people and to make society a better place for everybody.  The aim is to lead discussions about how to improve the future of the society and have citizens participate in shaping change. A “folkemøde” aims to: o   Inspire and challenge political views and visions o   Let people meet and listen to politicians they voted for o   Let people have a say and be heard o   Increase trust between citizens and decision-makers and hold politicians accountable o   “Peoplelize”, ;build a community where culture is showcased and celebrated o   Facilitate meaningful debates and anchor them in the political agenda  As cultural heritage is also celebrated in a Folkemøde, entertainment and good food are an integral part of such an event. Hence, at the Political Festival of Europe, you will be able to find arts and crafts, music and gastronomy, alongside the political debates, speeches, workshops, hearings etc.

The opening panel of EIF 30Years celebration was hold by Dr Jan-Gilbert Schultze, from Acton Capital. Dr Schultze made a fascinating presentation in which he drew parallels between the way the soil and the planet operate in regenerative fashion, and the linear, extractive model that we apply in our existence, from our daily lives right through to how we run the economy. We are called for a paradigm shift to re-align with the universal principles of life, like diversity, collaboration in the form of interdependent symbiosis and circularity, ultimately introducing the rights of life and the rights of nature into our laws and P&L calculations. 👉 Watch the full presentation and discover what it would take to shift to a circular economy. #eif #30yearsbold #circulareconomy #change

This week, we welcomed former Prime Minister of Italy Enrico Letta to present his report on the future of the Single Market, highlighting the key role of the European Investment Bank Group in contributing to Europe’s growth and prosperity and improving people’s lives. As part of our commitment to safeguarding Europe´s peace and security, we signed an agreement with the NATO Innovation Fund to encourage private investment in technology-based projects with both civilian and defence application. We announced new investments to support small businesses and sustainable projects in Portugal and Estonia, for circular economy innovators in the Netherlands, for renewables, energy efficiency, and social and affordable housing in Croatia, electric and hydrogen-powered buses and a high-speed railway network in Spain, and in Italy support for small businesses to access finance more easily. We also signed financing for energy efficient steel production in Austria and for a medical technology company in Belgium developing innovative treatments for Sleep Apnea. Outside the EU, Vice-President Vigliotti announced in Cairo a new financing scheme alongside the European Commission to support the decarbonization of Egyptian industry. And Vice-President Östros visited projects in Tanzania that support gender equality and a sustainable blue economy. Finally, the president of the European Investment Bank Group Nadia Calviño spoke to the graduate students attending this year’s EIB Summer School. It’s a great learning opportunity and also a chance for us at the EIB Group to hear the views of young people, Europe’s next generation of leaders and innovators. --------------------------------- Visit our website: https://www.eib.org Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EuropeanInvestmentBank Twitter: https://twitter.com/eib LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/european-investment-bank Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/europeaninvestmentbank/

This week we signed an agreement with the World Health Organisation and fellow Multilateral Development Banks to support primary healthcare services in low-income countries. And we announced new investments in a climate insurance fund addressing extreme weather events in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. A crucial measure to support countries on the frontline of climate change. We published an interesting Survey suggesting that Europeans over 30 are more aware of the climate challenge than younger generations. Alongside our climate action, it highlights the need for awareness raising. In an especially hard week for Ukraine, we showed our solidarity with a new water facility to supply 9,000 residents in the town of Bucha. We announced new investments in Finland, for sustainable packaging in the food and pharmaceutical sectors, in Spain, support for social enterprises and for tech companies to scale up, and in Italy, to digitalise public postal services. And as the biggest financier in Europe’s space industry, we’re proud to have supported Ariane 6, Europe's new heavy lift rocket, which made its first flight beyond the earth’s atmosphere this week. The President of the European Investment Bank Nadia Calviño had a good exchange with the President of the European Court of Auditors on the importance of transparency and sound financial management to maintain trust in EU institutions. Finally, EIB Group colleagues joined the Luxembourg Pride Run. We are proud to be in an institution where diversity and inclusion is a cause for celebration. --------------------------------- Visit our website: https://www.eib.org Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EuropeanInvestmentBank Twitter: https://twitter.com/eib LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/european-investment-bank Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/europeaninvestmentbank/
