ON THE ROAD - BRUSSELS
INTO 2019: HEARING THE HOPES & CONCERNS OF BRUSSELS’ YOUTH
The Listening Tour moved to Brussels for the first event of 2019, giving me the chance to hear directly from young people with a stake in the future of Europe.
The atmosphere was electric: there is great optimism about our continent, but we need to listen to these views. Tomorrow is built today!
We faced questions that can only be answered if we act together. We need an ambitious Europe to lead the way, building European solutions for the challenges ahead. Cancer is a great example: by pooling resources and research, together we can find a cure.
The security of Europe’s borders was clearly on the minds of those in the room. We need strong border controls: we need to know exactly who is entering in order to stop illegal migration.
It was great to see so many young people taking part and sharing their hopes, concerns and wishes. Thank you to everyone who contributed! Together we can build a #BetterEurope.
