Visit of European religious leaders to the EC: welcome and round table

90 views

On 12 July 2012, more than twenty senior representatives from Christian, Muslim and Jewish religions and from the Hindu and Bahá'í communities from all over Europe met in Brussels, under the motto "Intergenerational Solidarity: Setting the Parameters for Tomorrow's Society in Europe". This high-level meeting was called by José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, and co-chaired by Herman van Rompuy, President of the European Council, and László Surján, Vice-President of the EP representing Martin Schulz, President of the EP. In a frank and open spirit, the leaders discussed intergenerational solidarity and other important demographic challenges for Europe, like tackling unemployment, fostering active ageing, and reconciling work and private life. José Manuel Barroso encouraged religious leaders to engage in public dialogue and show the specific contributions that churches and religious communities can make to explain the need for solidarity. During the meeting, participants agreed on the need to raise awareness of the huge societal challenges, to take up responsibilities in important areas like strengthening solidarity between young and old, and fighting discrimination, and to effectively contribute to the Commission's overall growth strategy for Europe, by striving for better education, less poverty, and a fairer society. This video shows arrivals and round table.
