With European elections less than two weeks away and Ukip’s lead in the polls, we have to reframe the debate around Europe and get on the front foot.
We need a better Europe that can tackle the big issues we face today including inequality and climate change. This is why we need a vision for Europe that is rooted in values of equality, democracy and sustainability.
This publication is for everyone that wants to build a Good Society in Europe (it’s not too long!). We need you, as activists, thinkers and organisers to run with these ideas, develop and improve them and embed them in your own organisations. Just email us if we can help in any way to make this happen.
Here is a short summary of the main issues we have tried to tackle and it would be great to hear your thoughts:
• How we get out of recession without further harming our planet
• How to develop the resilience of local, regional, and national economies
• Ensuring there is a greater sense of security for everyone
• Learning from inspiring examples across Europe for example community energy schemes
