Have we forgotten Moldova and Georgia?

17th May 15.00 CEST

The war in Ukraine has shined light to forgotten EU candidate countries, Moldova and Georgia. Moreover, broader discussion about the relations between candidate countries and the European Union should be facilitated. 

The goal of this discussion is to raise awareness about the situation of candidate countries. Through panel and the following Q&A session a better understanding will be created about the possible co-operation and contribution between European Union and candidate countries.

Hyperlocal discussion format

We want to break out of the usual virtual event mindset and create a truly immersive pan-European discussion experience. The new hyperlocal discussion format connects different views of citizens from Ljubljana and Tartu to a joint discussion room. Video and sound seamlessly link multiple festival hubs, allowing you to engage in pan-European dialogue from your own city.  

To participate at HEDF you need to physically come to a physical room, but in that room you'll be digitally engaging with people in other countries who are also physically attending the festival.


The organiser of the discussion is Rahvusvaheliste Suhete Ring (International Relations Circle).
