With the EU at a crossroads, the time is right for an in-depth debate about our common vision and the financial means – i.e. the EU Budget 2020-2025 – to shape the future of the Union. Three Ambassadors, the European Commission and the CEO of a large Danish multinational will take a closer look at the challenges and strengths of the EU from a French, German and Polish perspective - and why this matters also for Denmark. The crucial questions of this debate will be: what should the Europe we want look like, what are the future challenges and what we are willing to contribute in order to meet those challenges? How can the EU secure economic growth, social stability and political security? How do we address scepticism about the EU and involve citizens in the European project? How do we strengthen the EU in a world that has experienced significant changes in the past years? What are the common values that we want to share with the world?
