Who we are
We are a group of European professionals from diverse backgrounds and professions, who provide a variety of viewpoints on social and economic topics, but are united by our shared concern for Europe’s future. Belonging to one of the first generations which benefited from European integration, we see our group as an embodiment of its promise: Different perspectives united by a common cause.
Firmly grounded in our respective fields, we still maintain idealism, energy, creativity and passion for new visions of an open, sustainable and optimistic society. We dare to dream of utopia, yet remain ready to face facts and recognize limits. We believe that the key to achieve this future lies in European integration, cooperation across disciplines and national divides, accountability and transparency. Independent of political parties, we speak on our own behalf.
While we may envision different solutions to the problems we seek to address, we see this diversity of views as the most appropriate way to grasp the complexity of these issues. Although our answers to the questions we are raising might differ, we share a common vision of a united Europe as a strong and constructive player in our planet’s future.
