Twenty-five years ago, citizens' uprisings across Eastern Europe overthrew totalitarian regimes and led to the fall of the Iron Curtain. Since then, the death strip that once divided Europe has been turned into the European Green Belt, a unique ecological network that both commemorates Europe's turbulent 20th century history and bears witness to civil society's power in the struggle for freedom and democracy.
This exhibition is being co-organised by the EESC and the European Green Belt Initiative. It will be opened on the JDE ground floor by the EESC president, Henry Malosse. Other speakers include Gabriel Schwaderer (European Green Belt Initiative), Adalbert Kienle (EESC member) and François Wakenhut (European Commission, tbc).
