In these difficult times, in which the “European Dream” risks to be undermined by multiple threats, Cambre and EU40, in partnership with the European Parliament Library, collaborated for the organisation of the breakfast debate that tackled various issues regarding the Future of the European Union. The event was joined by speakers with different backgrounds trying to find some answers on what can be kept and improved and what has to be cut out from the current scenario in order to allow the Europeans to live the European Dream.
