Learn, discuss, and formulate questions with your peers on what they think about the future of Europe and the EU. Who will you vote for and why? What are the implications of Brexit? What topics deserve more attention according to you? Which questions would you like to see answered by Europe’s Spitzenkandidaten? With some luck, Europe’s next leaders will answer them during the Maastricht Debate on 29th April....

During the event there will be information about thistimeimvoting.eu.
