On July 1st and 2nd, the Franck Biancheri Network in partnership with iCAN, the city of Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve and numerous partners organised the kick off event for the #CitizensRoute73 – Horizon 2019 European Election. Following Franck Biancheri’s 30 years battle for the democratisation of Europe political path, European citizens, actors of changes, have been invited to gather together on this Route to carry out the public trans-European debate through the invention of new methodologies, the definition of innovative tools and strategies.

Franck Biancheri has often repeated, and last in front of the AEGEE-Europe Agora in Enschede in May 2012: “There is nothing like one European. The European is a team of Europeans… the only way we can imagine a European, it is a team of people from different countries, not a single man or woman.”

And this also the only way to work on #CitizensRoute73

Les 1er et 2 juillet, le réseau Franck Biancheri en partenariat avec iCAN, la Ville d’Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve, et de nombreux autres partenaires l’événement de lancement de la #CitizensRoute73 à l’horizon de l’élection européenne 2019. Dans la ligne politique qui avait été dessinée par Franck Biancheri tout au long de son combat de 30 ans pour la démocratisation de l’Europe, les citoyens européens, acteurs du changement, ont été appelés à se rassembler pour avancer sur cette même Route et porter le débat public trans-européen par l’invention de nouvelles méthodes, la définition d’outils et de stratégies innovants.

Franck Biancheri l’a répété souvent et en dernier lieu devant l’Agora de AEGEE-Europe à Enschede en mai 2012: “Un Européen ce n’est pas un individu. Un Européen c’est une équipe d’Européens. … c’est une équipe de personnes de différents pays, pas un homme ou une femme seule.

Et c’est aussi notre seule façon d’avancer et de construire la #CitizensRoute73!
