In the spring of 2017, a group of young European thinkers joined together to form „Arbeit an
Europa“ (“Working on Europe”). Among their goals is a project to collect renowned and
experienced voices on the idea of Europe in the various member countries of the European Union
and to record them in sound and writing in order to outline a panorama of the European zeitgeist.
The emphasis is deliberately placed on voices: with this auditory focus, the project is intended to
promote a contemplative intellectual examination. It is all too common for current European crisis
debates to narrowly demand activity and optimised operating procedures. However, a culture of
listening and mutual understanding is necessary in order to strengthen European integration. The
„European Archive of Voices“ aims to contribute to this.
