Il futuro dei verdi in Europa. Il coraggio di cambiare

Pubblicato da Riccardo Bottazzo il

Oltre 750 iscritti provenienti da tutta Europa per discutere sul futuro dei Verdi nell’Unione. L’appuntamento sul tema “Courage to Change – Say Yes to Europe” (Il coraggio di cambiare – diciamo Sì all’Europa) si svolgerà a Berlino, venerdì 4 marzo.

Di seguito la presentazione dell’evento, in inglese, tratta dal sito del partito verde europeo, e il calendario dei lavori.

 

The EU is once again facing an extraordinary set of challenges: hundreds of thousands of people are looking for shelter from war, dictatorship and prosecution. Greece is in the fifth year of a deep crisis. It is still unclear as to whether there will be a sound agreement to combat climate change. Instead of developing urgently needed common solutions, national governments engage in navel-gazing and subordinate EU solidarity to national egos. But the fact is that the challenges of our time and the transnational problems, which concern us all, are far too big for any single country to cope with alone. We need an EU that sticks together and develops effective instruments to face the challenges and fight the causes of the crises

Over the past 70 years, the European project has been shaped again and again by deep crises. These crises also often proved to be unexpected opportunities to overcome stagnation. Today, the EU has to address fundamental questions: What changes do we need to make the EU adequately crisis-proof and capable of action? In what areas do we need more EU competences and more common policies? What instruments do we need to strengthen EU democracy? How can we offer millions of people, who are looking for shelter from war, the new perspective of a better life? What sort of cooperation do we need on budgetary, financial, social and economic policies to stabilise the economic and monetary union? How can the EU become an effective global forerunner for climate protection and renewable energy and fulfil its responsibility to make the world more peaceful and just?
