WE'RE BRIDGING CULTURES FOR A EUROPE EMBRACING BOTH ITS PAST AND ITS FUTURE
STart
(P)RETHINKING

Think new, think different.

Be courageous, unconventional and open for a change of perspective – this must be the urgent appeal to all European entrepreneurs of the 21st century in a globalized world.

Because quite often, besides technical progress, a groundbreaking innovation starts with a thrilling mixture of brilliant ideas, rethinking, freedom from fear and anxiety, and, last but not least, pioneering spirit.

The mission of this project is to bridge cultures for a shared vision of Europe. Together we can build our future on this visionary community of nations.

about #PRETHINKEUROPE

“I have heard from every participant I talked to, that they enjoyed chatting and arguing about the world, about Europe and about the exchange between cultures, but also ultimately finding common ground again in a good and constructive environment.”


PROF. Dr. MARTIN SELMAYR
Head Of Cabinet To The President Of The European Commission
“What I like very much here is the mixture of guests from business, politics, religion and social institutions as well as the discussion platform. The dialogues take place at a totally different level and we try to better understand one another."

"The European idea becomes tangible where the three European rivers meet, near the border triangle between Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic. #rethinkeurope invites you to look beyond the "Europe of today" and think about the "Europe of tomorrow" .
MANFRED WEBER
Member of the European Parliament,
Chairman of the Epp Group
“Europe is unique in its diversity. It’s an association of great countries with many strengths but also weaknesses. It is important to bundle these strengths with vision and drive to ensure that Europe remains a viable and pleasant place of peace for the next generations.”
ANDREAS FILL
Managing Director, CEO,
Fill Gesellschaft GmbH

The project #rethinkeurope symbolizes a distinctive open-mindness, which is still a trademark of our citizens today. The atmosphere therefore is perfect  for „rethinking Europe“.
