Greek crisis, geopolitical failures, migration wave, Brexit, Trump election, national democracies threatened… the Europeans citizens have been exposed to major and historical collective shocks for over 10 years now. In this year of the 60th anniversary of the Rome Treaty, it is time to go outside the box and put the European construction back on the peace, prosperity and democracy tracks originally intended.
The aim of this event is to build a citizen momentum rooted in the organised European civil society, in order to contribute to the emergence of a trans-European full-flesh “political life” by the next 2019 European election. Indeed this next election must absolutely provide the European citizens with their first democratic appointment around one common public debate on the directions to give to a highly depressed European construction. In order to make sure the next chapter of the European project serves the citizens’ common interests, it belongs to the European civil society to mobilize itself and re-open a future to Europe.
In Louvain-la-Neuve, the 200 EU Change Agents gathered intend to kick-off this momentum.
The citizen process we wish to trigger will contribute to make more visible and help structure the progressive debate on the future of Europe. In Louvain-la-Neuve takes place the kick-off event, but hopefully will be launched actions such as : the “European Festivals’ Moving Tribune”, a “Public debate on Europe” youtube channel, an “elect Georges” citizen-based e-election to test the potentialities of a trans-European election, etc…
Ideas and energies such as yours are needed there and therefore we hope we can count on you on July 1-2 (you can already register online and circulate the information towards those around you likely to be interested – any suggestion regarding programme, speakers, organisation… welcome !).
