Continuation of the ECR Group’s European Tour: “Europe’s Future: A New Hope”. Sixth stop: Stockholm

Tomorrow, 8 May, the ECR Group’s live broadcast will be held from Stockholm. The ECR Group believes that self-governing nations are the keystone of democracy and international cooperation. The European Union is proof of how successful cooperation between European countries can be. We should not change a system that works through further centralisation. The event will feature ECR Group Co-Chairman Ryszard Legutko, President of the ECR Institutional Policy Working Group Prof. Zdzisław Krasnodębski, ECR MEPs Peter Lundgren, Bert-Jan Ruissen, Assita Kanko, Leader of the Sweden Democrats Jimmie Åkesson, and other leading politicians from Sweden.

Live-streamed in 5 languages, the event will focus on both ‘The Future of Europe is the respect for fundamental rights and democracy of sovereign member states’ and ‘the Future of Europe is to save the economies of EU Member States, to control the external borders and to tackle organised crime in the Schengen area’.

Live broadcast: Saturday 8 May @ 17:00 CET

Opening of the Conference on the Future of Europe in Strasbourg

On Sunday, 9 May, the Conference on the Future of Europe is scheduled for its official inauguration in Strasbourg. The Conference is a direct attempt to reach out to citizens, to listen to their different voices. The ECR Group will continue to voice that it is time to rebuild our community of European states – a Europe of mutual respect, cooperation and solidarity.

When: Sunday 9 May @ 14:00 CET

Live broadcast: Conference on the Future of Europe – Inaugural event - Multimedia Centre (europa.eu)

Competition policy – annual report 2020

On Monday, 10 May, the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee (ECON) will vote on ECR MEP Johan Van Overtveldt’s own initiative report on competition policy in the EU. The ECR considers free and fair competition crucial to drive innovation and give consumers more choices, lower prices, and higher quality. Mr Van Overtveldt’s report calls for strict and impartial enforcement of EU competition rules. It further gives recommendations for updating them, most notably concerning the digital sphere where there is an urgent need to tackle unfair gatekeeper practices of Big Tech monopolies.

Vote: Monday @ 13:45

Erasmus: the Union programme for education, training, youth and sport

On Monday, the Committee on Culture and Education will vote on the Erasmus programme for 2021-2027. The Erasmus programme has some important innovations and will help fund European Universities, Centres of Vocational Excellence and the European Youth Portal “DiscoverEU”. The scope of the programme will be more inclusive than ever. Adult learners will benefit from mobility exchanges. The ECR Group is convinced that the next generation of Erasmus will be a great success.

Vote: Monday @ 10:15
