The Europe Challenge: Creating a sense of belonging

From social isolation to disinformation and climate crisis, Europe is facing multiple challenges. Democracy itself is at stake as Europeans become more and more polarised. If we are to respond to these challenges, the people of Europe must lead the way in solidarity.

This is why the European Cultural Foundation and partners created the Europe Challenge: an ambitious initiative designed to explore how people can meet, live and work in Europe today. The premise: to support libraries as democratic spaces that bring communities together to imagine a better future for Europe.

“Libraries are safe, diverse, democratic spaces. They are trusted spaces. They are human spaces in an age of Artificial Intelligence.”

André Wilkens, Director, European Cultural Foundation
