HIGH EDUCATION AS PRIORITY IN EU BUDGET.

In many developed countries we can check that people have Education as the most important force of progress and innovation. And they are right! But as we know fight to have more competencies and education is not always easy and it can be expensive. Not just because of the fees, but in many times people go to study very far from home. And it can difficult a lot the life of families with less budget. When I talk to people of Government of Portugal about reduce the fees to 0, a dream of a lot of families, we came with a conclusion that to do it happen it takes a very large rise of taxes. So we need to think Together! Rise our ambicions when the matter is education is very important for all Europe but can be for people that want to come live or make business here too. Lets take it as debate to make High and Common Education as one of the top priorities in the EU Budget. For more equality of opportunities.

We can progress with change, and only if we change our minds we can make a Social Europe. However, we can do that only if we are able to answer the how question. The Gothenburg Statement on Social Europe has answered to the what and the why questions, but we still need to answer to the most important one: How? How do we do a Social Europe? So far as a group we have not been able to speak and listen to ordinary people. The plan is great! But the structure is not easy to be understood in the whole EU. As Max Weber said: “Politics is made with the head, not with other parts of the body or soul”… but on the Brussels leg of Europe Together, on 19 October, the Mayor of Charleroi, Mr Paul Magnette said: “We [socialists and democrats] lost the elections but we have a soul.” Soul is not enough as Weber teaches us. We need a strong and smart head. We need to be able to talk to those in difficulties, to those that are not able to understand the complexities of the European Institutions and its policy making procedures. Therefore, we should question ourselves: Are we able to give voice to the voiceless? Those of us that participate in these events are lucky enough to have opportunities, but are we able to speak to unemployed people that struggle everyday for a piece of bread and to feed their children? Are we able to guarantee that the future of Europe is with a stronger European Union? If we show the way forward, if we explain how to achieve a Social Europe, then we will able to face the far-right populism, unfortunately in the rise in the whole EU. We need to go in the field, we need to be with the people, we need to ask them about their daily struggles and problems. We need to address the challenges of ordinary European citizens. This is the way forward for a Social Europe!
