The EU and its member states face an increasing number of challenges that require close cooperation at the European level, as shown by the Russian aggression against Ukraine and its consequences for Europe and the world. As close partners and founding members of the EU, both Germany and Italy are key to advancing European cooperation. During the Spinelli Forum, young leaders from both countries will develop concrete proposals over the two-day event.
