On Wednesday 15 January, we held our third live chat with one of our Green Primary contenders. This time Monica Frassoni was the person behind the keyboard, answering questions from all four corners of Europe: Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Monica's home country of Italy, Netherlands, Slovenia, and Spain. Both the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom were well represented, reflecting the debates that we'll be holding there on Friday 17 January (Prague) and Saturday 18 January (London) – you can find out more about those debates here.
Facing a lot of questions regarding European unity, European solidarity and the advance of populism in the EU, Monica put forward the argument that the strongest counter to some of the problems in Europe is that we push for stronger connections, ignoring the overly simple answers presented by eurosceptics. She also talked passionately about the Green New Deal, and how it can help Europe develop a stronger, more sustainable economy.
