During the months and weeks before the meeting in Frankfurt the core group of Co-Creating Europe had sent out invitations including the project’s manifesto to people from all over Europe. They were looking for networkers, solutionaries and disseminators from as many European countries as possible; people from all age groups who are rooted in Presence and who feel the necessity for action from that place; people who love Europe and who recognise the need for a new culture, as well as a renewed sense of European identity.
From the 9th till the 11th of March 2018 twenty-nine wonderful people gathered in Frankfurt – bonding, reflecting and co-creating : Brigitte Wingelmayr (Austria), Helen Titchen Beeth (Belgium, UK), Zhivko Stoilov (Bulgaria), Barbara Torggler (Austria), Elizabeth Debold (Germany, USA), Thomas Steininger (Germany, Austria), Sonja Student (Germany), Griet Hellinckx (Germany, Belgium), Stephan Ley (Germany), Barbara von Meibom (Germany), Hilde Weckmann (Germany, Austria), Bence Ganti (Hungary, USA), Ágota Éva Rusza (Hungary), Arni Heidar Karlsson (Iceland), Teresa Noce (Italy), Alise Skupele (Latvia), Marie-Rose Fritz (Luxemburg), Anne-Marie Voorhoeve (the Netherlands), Lysan Boshuyzen (The Netherlands), Maciek Gutkowski (Poland), Pavel Luksha (Russia), Domen Kocevar (Slovenia), Joserra González (Spain), Anders Nyberg (Sweden, South-Africa), Annette Kaiser (Switzerland), Cecile Cassini (Switzerland), Marian Brehmer (Turkey, Germany), and Aslinur Brehmer-Akdeniz (Turkey).
Fourteen people, who would have loved being there, had to prioritise other tasks. They are staying in the loop and are thus adding to the range of countries represented in this growing field: Carolyn Lee (Ireland, Australia), Damir Saciragic (Bosnia), George Pór (UK, Hungary), Ivan Fomin (Russia), Jasenka Gojsic (Croatia), Jasmin Egger (Liechtenstein), Jordí Cartanya (Spain), Kalypso Nicolaidis (UK, Greece, France), Lev Gordon (Russia), Marco Robledo (Spain), Nora Ganescu (Slovakia, Romenia, Hungary), Shelley Sacks (UK, South-Africa), Stephen Busby (UK), Timo Pfender (Germany) and Wolfgang Aurose (USA, Germany).
