Reimagining, Redesigning, Rethinking

  • EUROPE 2025 is a student initiative to reimagine, redesign and rethink Europe and the European Union. The project brings together public policy students from the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin, the London School of Economics and Political Science and Sciences Po, Paris, with policy-makers from across Europe in an endeavour to infuse the debate on Europe with a fresh international perspective and bold political imagination. Collaborating in three international working groups, these students reviewed current debates and proposals for reforming Europe and reached out to hear from young Europeans about their ideas and hopes. On the occasion of the Paris Townhall organized by the Berggruen Institute on Governance, they presented three policy briefings on pressing issues facing Europe and European governance today. The following is a summary of their findings and proposals. You can find out more about the project and read the full reports at or email
