Read Our Joint Statement to EU Leaders Ahead of the Bratislava Summit

12 September 2016

ECAS, together with over 177 other civil society organisations and trade unions, has put forward a common statement on what the future of Europe should look like. This common statement comes out in the week in which the President of the European Commissioner, Jean-Claude Juncker, will deliver his second State of the European Union speech, and ahead of the Bratislava Summit of EU leaders, both of which are expected to focus on the way forward for Europe.

Among the key messages included in the text two are particularly close to ECAS’ mission and areas of work: first, the EU needs to deliver tangible benefits for its citizens, with civil society having a key role to play in contributing to this objective; and, secondly, the EU must find better ways to listen to and engage actively with citizens of all ages and social backgrounds to better understand their needs and be able to respond to them.
