Inclusive, Innovative, Interconnected
Europe is at a crossroads facing an array of demands and challenges. Global players around the world have woken up and are increasingly gaining ground. Europe is on stand-by lacking a meaningful vision: its social, political and economic models are being second-guessed by part of its population and contested by some member states promoting new models. While these tensions escalate and cleavages grow, the European project is itself being questioned. Despite the turmoil, Europe must overcome the obstacles and forge a cohesive leadership as there exists no alternative to succeed in a globalised world.
