Café Europa is a project initiated by Mons 2015 – European capital of culture. By launching the concept of Café Europa, Mons 2015 hopes to bring back these emblematic places for meetings and exchanges and reinstate their stated role through the digital dimensions of accessibility, conviviality and fun.
As hyper-connectivity in the civil society can end up finally in separating people, Mons 2015 is strongly supporting the return of real social contact. Indeed, the more technologies evolve, the more people feel the need to return to what is essential, direct human contact, and not a virtual one. Is there a better place than a café to renew these links and rebuild the world?
