Accession of the EU to the European Convention on Human Rights

As Socialists and Democrats, we are supporting a common vision of Europe. It is time to reignite the value which have established peace in Europe. Ideally we could support the United States of Europe but first we need to come back to very essential values. Even if those values are shared by other political forces, it is our responsability as challengers to raise high those value. S and D have the historical responsability to bring the EU inside the ECHR protection scheme. There is no rivalry but actual cooperation. Luxembourg and Strasbourg courts are already cooperating. The rogue behaviour of some EU and non EU European countries must be addressed with rigour and conviction. Red lines have been crossed to easy. Over it is over! It was written by a clever mind in the TEU but since entry into force there is no progress. A political will is needed to make this come true. By acceding to the ECHR, the EU will clearly put forward its value on Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law. This will align not only EU Member States but also neighbouring countries of the Balkans and post Soviet Area.

By 2030, cities around the world will be responsible for 74% of the greenhouse gas emissions. Facing this challenge, we must not only be ambitious but also visionary. In this spirit, we must give priority to the circular economy and eco-design, foster environmental education and choose a radical and effective energy transition. Cities have always been in the forefront of change. Cities in Europe have countless of concrete solutions that will enable humanity to overcome the planetary challenges that we have already started to face.   We must reinvent our cities, finding novel ways for our fellow citizens to make way for cultural, economic, social and societal innovation. In this respect, we must truly use technological innovation at the service of sustainable cities, ensuring that our European cities are the most prosperous and dynamic on earth. Their strength comes from values of tolerance and mutual respect that unite our peoples far more than our differences divided us. Tolerance equals strength!   A year after President Trump announced the US exit from the Paris Climate Agreement we need to continue our collective fight with unwavering determination. We need to knock down walls and put up bridges. We need for forge truly progressive urban policies for cities where life is good.   We need to continue to fight contamination, choosing clean energies and favoring electric modes of transportation, car-pooling and cycling. We need even stronger commitment towards finding the proper solutions to achieve universal shared progress for the good of the people. For this reason, we need to ensure that we can collect best practices on ecological transformation across Europe, using in-depth local and regional knowledge.
