  Caffè Europa

  A cycle of public meetings:

New and old vulnerabilities: dimensions and interventions between Florence and Europe


A cycle of 3 open public meetings has been organized in 2023 by the Chair within the initiative “Caffè Europa” of the City of Florence. These are popular meetings with an informal character, designed to create a stimulating environment, where students and citizens can engage with experts on issues that affect their daily lives and ask questions while having coffee together ( ) This event has been jointly organized with the European Office of the City of Florence and the European University Institute in Florence.

The Chair promotes a cycle of meetings along the theme “New and old vulnerabilities: dimensions and interventions between Florence and Europe”, including a first meeting on energy poverty and household vulnerability, a second one on social justice and inequality and a final event on next generation EU and equal opportunities. These informal events have created a social engagement on the topics of the Chair and on the contribution of European institutions to fight these challenges.


Our meetings intend to raise awareness on how energy poverty and other vulnerabilities are spreading not only in old age classes of citizens but also in young cohorts. The causes of the phenomena will be explained and suggestions to challenge it and to support vulnerable citizens will be described. A debate with the audience will follow.
