Greens from all over Europe came to take part in the Green Campaign Kick-off Café Europe in Berlin, with the Green candidates sending out the same message: Europe can and must do better. We Greens are fighting for an ecological, more democratic Europe with more solidarity.
Green leading candidate Ska Keller said: “We have to decide now on how we want to live in Europe – whether we want more blind austerity or rather to aim for a more social Europe. Whether we still want to ignore the climate crisis or if we finally push for binding CO2 targets. Whether we want more back-room politics or rather to secure real civic participation. Whether we want more of fortress Europe or if we want to welcome people who were forced to flee their home countries."
We are convinced that Europe must and can do better. To heat up the final phase of the European Election campaign, Greens from all over Europe presented their vision on key issues. European Green Co-Chair Reinhard Bütikofer commented on the event: "We Greens decided early on to do a common European Election Campaign, instead of a pure addition of several national navel contemplations. We are convinced that we can tackle common challenges only together, and that by our cohesiveness and cooperation we can make a difference in the next European Parliament.”
