The Seventh Value

The Seventh Value is a new six-episode podcast series exploring what it means to be European today.

The European project was founded on a set of shared values – but have they stood the test of the time and how relevant are they in our increasingly tempestuous political environment? What do concepts like freedom, equality and democracy really mean in Europe today and how can we relate them to the stories unfolding around us?

Each episode explores a different value, diving into contemporary stories about Europe like migration, Brexit and the impact of mining pollution on local communities, and bringing together a diverse range of think tanks and research centres for a unique, open discussion. At the end of each episode, the participants are invited to add their own new value: the 'seventh value'.

Episode one: Human Dignity – published 12 May, 2022

Episode two: Freedom – published 20 May, 2022

Episode three: Democracy – coming soon

Episode four: Equality – coming soon

Episode five: Rule of Law – coming soon

Episode six: Human Rights – coming soon

The Seventh Value is a co-production between the Evens Foundation and Are We Europe, an award-winning European media outlet, a collective of journalists and storytellers building a new media for a changing continent.

The series launched in May 2022 on Acast and is also available on Spotify.
