José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, participated in the high level seminar organised by P. Nikiforos Diamandouros, European Ombudsman, on "Europe in crisis: the challenge of winning citizens' trust". In his speech the President focused on possible ways to close the gap between "people in the street" and the elites in the EU. He called for leadership and strong ownership of the European project, saying that the EU was not just Brussels but it was for all. The leadership of EU institutions was required, but also at all levels, from national Governments, Parliaments, social partners, civil society, business, universities. He highlighted that democracy was not just about the state but about engaging.
