London has chosen the beginning of spring for its first ever Festival of Europe. March 2007 marks the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, the document sealing Europe’s commitment to creating a unified economic landscape.
Panels, lectures and screenings, most of them free to the public, will explore Europe’s role in mass media, its response to Mr. Gore’s inconvenient truth, and pose some big questions. For example, what about Turkey‘s membership application?
“Europe’s Borders and Values”, the keynote event, takes place this Sunday.
