We are living in extraordinary and risky times.

We need the EU to take the leadership in putting in place an action plan able to address in the short and in the medium term concrete actions to answer to the global challenges we are facing today. No State can face alone the consequences of Covid19.

We call on the EP to implement the adequate mechanisms to resume its work as soon as possible, and to organize a space for the elaboration, proposal and mobilization of all possible instruments. The current EU institutional system has shown its weakness and inadequacy.

In addition to short term measures, it is necessary to relaunch the initiative of democratic reform of the EU in order to make it fit for purpose.

The EP must be at the forefront of this effort, and urge the EU to push for a strategy to trigger this path, based on 5 pillars:

  • giving a systemic and common response of the European Union to the Covid-19 crisis;
  • enhancing reforming the EU healthcare and civic protection instruments and competences to respond to outbreaks;
  • implementing all economic, financial and monetary policy measures to allow the EU to unlock resources and common measures to support citizens with the consequences of the pandemic, including measures for the mutualisation of public debts, own resources for the EU budget, according to a radical ecological reform of european taxation (including the acceleration of the Green New Deal);
  • turning the first stages of the Conference on the Future of Europe into a public online assembly and reshape its goals;
  • contributing to a global mechanism to prevent and face epidemics and pandemics
