"Donnons vite un nouvel élan à l'Europe !" - Our 2014 ESC' declaration published in Le Figaro
Our 2014 European Steering Committee (ESC) declaration, adopted after the debates of the last 12 and 13 December 2014, has been published in the French newspaper Le Figaro on 19 December 2014 under the title : "Donnons vite un nouvel élan à l'Europe !" (The EU Needs a Fresh Boost...Fast).
Among the key mesages:
- The Europeans will find the fuel to impart this new boost to their construction process primarily by casting their gaze over the world at large far more than they have done during the endless and devastating crisis in the euro area.
- Imparting a fresh thrust to the EU also includes making better use of the opportunities that it offers as a space for economic and human exchange and as a public power.
- Imparting a fresh thrust to the European construction also means allowingthe EU to be perceived not as a threat but as an answer to the threats and challenges fuelling people's fears while at the same time actually strengthening the benefits to be gained from uniting.
- Ladies and gentlemen in charge of the European institutions, time is of the essence!
