EDP MEPs tell us why they chose to fight for Europe

"Languages, cultures, regional differences and local initiatives must be cherished because they are Europe’s strongest asset."

A look back at our 1st Solutions for Europe in Angers

Première d'Europe des Solutions

The first event of the Solutions for Europe campaign organised by French MEP Catherine Chabaud (MoDem) brought together more than 40 stakeholders (innovators, NGOs, local officials, business leaders, civil society).

The launch in Angers on 18 February was an opportunity to present initiatives that have already proved their worth and could be developed on a larger scale or replicated in other European territories, and to explore together the avenues of reflection for responding to the challenges linked to the four main pillars of our European societies: the economy, social issues, democracy and education.

The conference was launched by the Mayor of Angers, Christophe Béchu, who expressed how pleased he was to develop collectively with the help of concrete solutions and a European benchmark.

The event was concluded with a message from EDP Secretary General Sandro Gozi: "Europe is the place where big issues are discussed, but the Europe we want more is a Europe of citizens, of territories, which provides solutions. Europe does not fall from the sky but it sees concrete solutions and above all the women and men behind these solutions. As European Democrats, this is the Europe we want to bring to life."
