The Jubel festival wants to propose an innovative approach in engaging a dialogue with citizens about their concrete concerns and proposals regarding European democracy and the functioning of the European Union.
The Jubel festival wants to identify alternative methodologies to consult and dialogue with citizens.
The core question at the heart of the “Jubel European Democracy Festival” is: how to strengthen democracy in Europe, identify European citizens’ priorities, concerns and ideas for the EU’s future and their place in this future?
The festival wants to contribute, by means of a bottom-up approach, to the idea of citizen consultations launched by French president Macron and endorsed by his fellow heads of state and government, as well as the consolidated initiative of the European Commission, with the help of a structured output about the future of the European democratic project and the current functioning of the European Union.
The Jubel festival wants to be something completely different than anything that has been seen so far under the European sky. In expression, content and crowd.
Jubel is the European democracy festival inspired by the Nordic and Baltic initiatives. Our aim is to create an innovative and bottom-up experience where European citizens can exchange in a colourful way about the future of the European project.
As a matter of fact, we would like you to help us gather the feelings of European citizens. Our aim is to listen to people’s everyday life concerns and ideas about the Europe they want or don’t want.
This will be the task of our future Jubel ambassadors, your tasks !
The selected ambassadors will be in charge of interviewing different kind of European citizens all over the Union. Each ambassador should carry out 5 interviews of 30 minutes each with people presenting diversified profiles in terms of gender, nationality, background or even age.
The goal is to grasp a set of different concerns. The striking punchlines and the global idea of the citizens’ must be retained after the interview. In fact, your interviews will be the basis of the discussions in September and your contribution will be actually shaping the Jubel European democracy festival.
As a matter of fact, you are going to be amongst the invited candidates to the event (travel costs might be reimbursed).
