The Europa-Forum Wachau was founded in 1994 on the occasion of Austria's accession to the EU. Since then, the aim has been to promote the topic of Europe and to communicate it passionately to the citizens.
Since 1995, 26 Prime Ministers and 32 Foreign Ministers, 3 Commissioners and over 10,000 guests have taken part in the Europa-Forum Wachau in addition to one President.
Jean Claude Juncker, Viktor Orbán, Manfred Weber and Frans Timmermans have already been active participants in the Europa-Forum Wachau.
Salon Europa-Forum Wachau
The new format of the Europa-Forum Wachau will include six citizen dialogues "Salon Europa-Forum Wachau" in advance.
The Salon acts as a think tank for central European topics. Guests from politics as well as experts from business, technology, culture, science and the media discuss current social challenges. The Salon also serves as a forum for involving the public in the Europa-Forum Wachau.
Participants can vote on relevant topics using online voting software for their mobile phones. The most important statements will influence the Europa-Forum Wachau and will be discussed further. The salons will be supported scientifically by the Danube University Krems.
