We would like to invite you to another debate within the Café Evropa series, this time on the topic "18 years of the Czech Republic in the EU - how has our membership in the European Union grown?".
This time the debate will take place in person during Europe Day on Střelecký ostrov in Prague, and will also be streamed on our Facebook page.
What are the biggest benefits of the Czech Republic's EU membership? How has the Czech Republic changed since joining the EU and how do you assess its performance in the EU so far? And can the Czech presidency make a major contribution to improving the Czechs' understanding of how the EU works?
The debate is organised by the European Commission in the Czech Republic, the European Parliament Office in the Czech Republic and EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy. The media partner of the debate is Deník.cz
