This cycle of online lectures and workshops will look at the values, culture and roots of contemporary Europe, but also at the future of the continent, as well as other issues such as the changes that the COVID-19 pandemic will bring about inareas such as economics, education and tourism. Based on the YUFE's spirit of co-creation and openness, attendees will be able to actively participate in these activities by adding their own comments and questions.

In each of the five weeks up to December the 4th, four online lectures will be held in the different universities that are part of the YUFE. To attend,you will need to register through the event website.

This cycle of virtual talks begins today, November the 3rd, with an online lecture taking place at the UC3M. The lecture is entitled “A community in progress? The dynamics of European identification in times of global crises”, and will be delivered by Dr.Aleksandra Sojka, a Juan de la Cierva postdoctoral researcher at the UC3M’s Department of Social Sciences.
