ECR European Tour: “Europe’s Future. A New Hope”.

27 January 2021

ECR European Tour: “Europe’s Future. A New Hope”.

The ECR Group in the European Parliament launched the European tour on the Future of the European Union in December 2020. The tour takes the form of a series of live broadcasts from 15 European capitals, in which citizens of our Member States are consulted.

The Future of Europe Conference, announced by the President of the Commission, is a challenge for all European political movements that do not share the Federalist vision. The so-called pro-European federalists tell us it is ‘more Europe or no Europe’.

We do not believe in extremes. There is a middle way. It is time to restore the ideal of a Europe that respects the sovereignty of our national democracies. It is time to rebuild our community of European states - a Europe of mutual respect, cooperation and solidarity. It is time for a new hope for Europe.

This is why the ECR Group launched the European Tour; to consider more effective and durable alternatives to European centralisation.

We want to show that a new way can save Europe from the clutches of a federalist ideology; an ideology that risks rolling back all the progress made by sovereign, national democracies working together over many years as equal partners for the common good.

The next stop will be a live broadcast from Sofia. In 2021, the tour will stop in major cities across the continent to discuss Europe’s Future with politicians, academics and civil society participants. Our events will be live streamed, sharing the vision of a Europe that does less, but does it better.

More information will be shared on our Social Media Channels and on our website: www.ecrthefuture.eu. Join us to #ResetEU
