3rd Salon on 4th March 2020 - Video broadcast
The Europa-Forum Wachau was established in 1995 on the occasion of Austria's accession to the EU. Since then, the aim has been to promote the topic of Europe and passionately communicate it to the citizens.
Since that time, 28 heads of government, 34 ministers of foreign affairs, EU commissioners and over 10,000 representatives of the world of business, diplomacy, culture, politics and the media have attended the event at Göttweig Abbey.
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 was supplemented for the first time in 2019 with six civil 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.
