Togheter we are more!

Hi there! I think that education is key to foster social rights. It is about knowledge and attitudes. But let’s face it. We have a problem to solve: social rights in Europe and European identity = lack of awerness After years of working in my field, I’ve learned that great ideas come with good research. So, if we don’t know our problems, then we can’t find the right solution. If imagination doesn’t work, then we can’t see something before actually happens. Let’s change this! It is never too late to making sure that we provide know-how opportunities for all young people. We should start cultivate the imagination through a know-how initiative. I think that a good idea is to make a creative European digital project (illustrate/ animation/ video/ articles) which clarify what social rights means – including rights and responsibilities of citizens. Imagine a website that contains a lot of digital content about our social rights, how we can enjoy being European citizens and what opportunities do we have. The readers will find out in a catchy way more details about it. This is important because it will help us grow, develop and better understand the future we want to experience. The Europeans are not always aware of the rights. Through this digital project we can empower young people to know more about their social rights and use them more easily. That’s how we can ensure that they are a reality for all. Together we are more!

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!
