The ECR Group’s Conference on the Future of Europe tour reaches Vilnius, Lithuania

The ECR Group’s Conference on the Future of Europe tour reaches Vilnius, Lithuania

On Wednesday 2 June, Vilnius, Lithuania will host the seventh event in the ECR Group's conference on the future of Europe: "Europe's Future - A New Hope".

This time, the focus is on the concept of a Europe of homelands and the need for a return to Christian values. From the very beginning, the European Union has made use of Christian symbols and values in public life. The aim was for Europe to develop peacefully in the post-war period. We hold that it’s vital that Christian values retain their importance in European politics.

The ECR Group’s live broadcast “Europe’s Future: A New Hope, Vilnius” will feature ECR Group Co-Chairman Raffaele Fitto, President of the ECR Institutional Policy Working Group Prof. Zdzisław Krasnodębski, ECR MEPs Zbigniew Kuźmiuk, Patryk Jaki and members of the Lithuanian Parliament from the Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania.

Anyone and everyone is invited to stream the event live on Wednesday 2 June 2021, 14:00 CET and pose questions to the panellists directly in the YouTube Livestream chat, or by tweeting with the hashtag #AskResetEU.

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 European Member States are consulted. Warsaw, Sofia, Zagreb, Bucharest, The Hague and Stockholm have already hosted the travelling conference.

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

The ECR Group does not believe in extremes. There is a middle ground. 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.

The Group aims 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.

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