Visit of European religious leaders to the EC

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, Herman van Rompuy, President of the European Council, and László Surján, Vice-President of the EP, received around twenty senior representatives from the Christian, Jewish, Muslim religions as well as from the Buddhist communities. They participated together in the high-level meeting on the theme "Putting citizens at the heart of the European project in times of change".
The religious organisations across the EU were invited to voice their ideas about the future of Europe, about the European values, social issues and questions of solidarity. In his speech the President underlined that the churches, the religious communities had an extremely important role in the very dense fabric of Europe and that he knew how important was the role they were playing in addressing many of these pressing situations, namely in terms of social needs.
The contribution of the representatives of churches and religious communities directly fed into the broader, on-going Europe-wide debate amongst citizens, businesses, civil society and government organisations, in the context of the European Year of Citizens 2013.
