On 11 April 2019, the Bruges Chapter of the 89 Initiative, a pan-European think-do tank based at the European Institute of the London School of Economics and Political Science hosted an event at the College of Europe in Bruges, to discuss the questions collected with its #AskYourFuture campaign (https://89initiative.com/ask-your-future/) with Mr Guy VERHOFSTADT, President of the ALDE Group in the European Parliament, Lead candidate of OpenVld for the European elections and member of ALDE’s Team Europe.

The event aimed at bridging the so called "Brussels Bubble" with citizens, and it revolved around the ambition to reach out to people who are not in contact with politics or the institutions of the European Union. The goal was, in fact, to get to know what changes and developments are most important to those who are not the "usual suspects".

The format of the event was a Keynote Speech from Mr VERHOFSTADT, followed by a debate revolving around the questions collected during the #AskYourFuture campaign.

This event was open to the public.
