The FutureLab Europe
programme focuses on young people between the ages of 20 and 30 who would like to take part in debates and influence the future of Europe. One member of this year's group of 20 individuals from all over Europe is Norwegian Stine Solvoll Navarsete. She will be heading for Brussels in January 2017 to participate in FutureLab's annual forum.
FutureLab Europe was established i 2011 as a joint project between several European foundations, including Fritt Ord. There are currently seven different foundations taking part in the project, while the think tank, the European Policy Centre, bears the administrative responsibility. This year's group is the sixth generation of FutureLab participants. In addition to participating in several sessions in Brussels, the group will carry out proprietary projects aimed at reinforcing civil society and local democracy in their respective countries.
