Change is necessary. We must fight for reform, but not let it be destroyed. The reality is if the EU didn't exist, we would have to create it. Because no single country can respond to climate change, international terrorism and ensure that globalisation delivers for everyone.
The EU should once again become a projection of our shared values: the defense of liberal democracy, fundamental rights and a European identity.
But this means that we must dare to make choices and give the Union the tools it needs to be effective. We need a joint European capacity to defend our liberty and wellbeing.
Only if we choose to address Europe’s flaws and reform it, the EU will again be a driving force for new jobs, security and prosperity.
Let's not throw it all away, but move Europe forward. Join our fight for another Europe.
