73 views

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, and Hans-Gert Pöttering, President of the EP, gave a joint press conference in The Hague on how building Europe of the future. 60 years ago, the model for the European Union as we know it today was conceived at the Congress of Europe in The Hague. 60 years later, Europe finds itself confronted by different challenges and needs new ideas to define its future. The European Movement will take up this challenge again and propose ideas suited to a 21st century Europe. This unique event brought together the heads of the EU Institutions, European Political Parties, and representatives of European Civil Society, allowing them to directly address these key EU politicians with their concerns and recommendations about Europe’s future. Europe’s civil society has proposed ideas through a dedicated online discussion platform and the most popular 60 of these were discussed through three themes (Political, Economic & Social and Education & Culture), and debated with Europe’s political leaders in two TV debates on the 24th of May.
