Discussion topics

Club meetings are organised to allow members to share knowledge and expertise about various aspects of communications, or about issues affecting citizens across Europe.  Recent discussion topics have included:


  • Communicating Europe – increasing public engagement with the issues

  • Public communications in the age of austerity

  • Public diplomacy, reputation management and branding
  • Capacity building and training – transferring knowledge and supporting other member states

  • Crisis communications – general principles and practical application (including government communication after natural disasters and emergencies)

  • Impact and applications of social/digital media on government communications

The Club organises several types of meetings. Plenary meetings are held twice a year, with as many members as possible encouraged to attend and contribute.

Workshops are organised to cater to the interests of smaller groups of members and are convened to discuss, share best practice about or study a specific aspect of government communications (for example, dealing with a public emergency, or using digital platforms). To date, workshops have been held in a variety of locations, including Brussels, London, Paris, Vienna, Istanbul, Sofia, and Porec (Croatia).
