The European Citizens’ Meeting 2024 will take place on Sept. 09 until Sept. 15

Thank you for a great ebb 2022!

Our team is across generations committed and, on a voluntary basis, highly active in shaping a Europe of citizens.

"Let's get together!" is our slogan when Europeans meet every two years in Kassel. Aditionally, we have launched a new platform called 'EBB ONLINE' to encourage discussions and a permanent European exchange of inrformation and thoughts on how to make Europe a better place for everyone.

The European Union in crisis? One might think that the European idea is increasingly losing supporters because Brexit, disagreement over the refugee issue and the pursuit of national rather than European interests challenge the unity of Europe.

The truth is, however, that Europe continues to be an alliance that is supported by many people and that, in a global world, constitutes an economic and socio-political power: a peaceful and democratic global player in the world order alongside the US, Russia and China.

Europe must be a Europe of citizens. We, the organizing team of the European Citizens’ Meeting (EBB), take this goal seriously and want to bring Europe to life for each and every one of us.

We are a group of dedicated European volunteers from Kassel and the region who are already active in various other organisations.

“The meeting of citizens from all over Europe here in Kassel is an example of international understanding in action. Europeans get to know each other and exchange views on various major and minor issues in life. This breaks down prejudices and strengthens the cohesion of people in the European Union.”

– Dr. Sven Schoeller (Lord Mayor of the City of Kassel)


We want people from all over Europe to get in touch with each other. We would like to involve everyone and hope that participants of the meeting come to Kassel from all over Europe, from the most diverse of professional groups, that they are of different ages and sexes and have diverse life stories. We would like to demonstrate and experience the colour and diversity that Europe has to offer.

The EBB should become a platform for a lasting exchange of all Europeans and prove that Europe is more than just a bureaucratic superstructure of one alliance unit. After all, it is a Europe whose inhabitants want to and should get to know each other better, whose inhabitants can talk about both common interests and differences, and recognize that diversity can enrich their own lives. We want to make Europe accessible.
