Evening event 

May 22, 2019, Vienna

The so called “Fuckup nights” are happening in  more than 300 cities worldwide. Each time speakers pose the question: what can we learn from our failures? Right on time before the European Elections we put our focus on Europe: four speakers talked in this special edition about their personal fuckups in Europe and the European Union and considered what we could do differently, together. 

  • Speech writer of EU-Council President Donald Tusk Hugo Brady reported on verbal fuckups of European heads of states.
  • Christian E. Weißgerber told a very personal and touching story about his past as a Neonazi – and how he got out of the scene. 
  • Europe-activist and founder of Pulse of Europe – Austria Nini Tsiklauri illustrated how hard it can be to communicate Europe.
  • Stefan Riedl was dealing with the “European Citizens’ Initiative” as staff member of the European Parliament – and still today hardly any citizen knows about it.
