The best way to contribute YOUR suggestions:

First of all, remember that you can do as many suggestions you want, including concepts already present in this list! Personally, I suggest to do it as follows. You will be surprised to see how quick (and fun!!) it can be:

  • consider all the GENERAL topics you care about and/or know well (e.g.: modern art, Danish politics, geography, sci-fi, medioeval history, software, whatever, really…)
  • for each topic, figure out what you consider the most important concepts in that field
  • enter all those concepts in the “5000 Concepts for Europe” form. If you thought of more than 5 concepts, just reload the form until you are done
  • repeat for the next topic
