In our tumultuous times faced with the growing challenges of climate change, great power politics and their security implications, inequality in all its forms, or the economic recovery in the aftermath of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of dialogue and creative, innovative thinking is indisputable. In the era of fake news and disinformation, respectful and fact-based exchange on how we as a transatlantic community want to shape our future is essential. In line with its mission to provoke and promote dialogue on current affairs, the proposed project of the Hungarian Europe Society seeks to provide platform for such an exchange between opinion leaders with conflicting views from Europe and the United States and the wider public - in the form of essays and online discussions - on topics ranging from the future of transatlantic relation, transition to a green economy, the challenges of digitalization or the future of liberal democracy.
Our aim is to improve our understanding of the implications of selected challenges, generate potential common solutions and to facilitate exchange and contacts between American and European (especially Central European) communities. We plan to close the project with a workshop that will function as an idea-incubator and will kick-off new, innovative projects based on the year-long exchange between HES and its partners.
