CoFoE – Historic opportunity to ensure the EU fully reflects Europe’s diversity

The EU is about much more than 27 member states. It is a mosaic of peoples and cultures willing to share the present and construct a common, better future. Europe needs to adapt so that it can properly reflect citizens’ legitimate demands for democratic change within member states.

Listen to all Europe's languages to shape Europe's future
