On Europe Day, Stéphane Séjourné, President of Renew Europe, has made a rallying call to build a Europe of tomorrow, ready to move beyond crisis management, built on green energy, harnessing technological change, and modernised institutions. This new Europe can only be built from a progressive, centrist alliance.
Commenting on Europe Day, Stéphane Séjourné, said;
"Europe Day is an opportunity to celebrate all the achievements and opportunities provided by European peace and integration. As the pro- European Group in the European Parliament, we are determined to build a stronger, reformed Union with citizens at its heart. The Europe of tomorrow will be built from the political centre."
Speaking during the “This is Europe” debate with Germany’s Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Stéphane Séjourné, said;
"A new determination to think about the Europe of tomorrow is essential. We, as European parliamentarians, are waiting for this vision from the capitals. The vision of a change of era. Crisis management is not enough. We must prevent the next one. We must foresee and build."
"Renew Europe is proud that some of our proposals, such as transnational lists and the end of unanimity in foreign policy, which were put forward by the FDP, are now the official proposals of the German government. Our Europe must be faithful to the sacrifice of the Ukrainians by being ready to receive in the best conditions the countries that have the vocation to join our European family."
