Final statement of the European Union Civil Cooperation Council’s (EuCCC) founding meeting Budapest 25 April, 2019Excerpt: Confirming the goals of the EuCCC\\\\\\\'s intellectual foundation, we believe that the reform of the European Union dreamed by the Christian-Democratic ancestors, including Adenauer and Schuman is especially relevant. There is an urgent need for reorientation of the community integration which has been strongly demaged in terms of its historical and cultural identity. We believe that today, Europe needs more than ever to strengthen Christian culture and cultural identity, as the main foundation for Europe\\\\\\\'s modern organizational form, to defend the Christian ideals that have shaped Europe for centuries.
EuCCC – Final statement
The inadequacy of the current European Union is increasingly evident, as the recent story of the tragic vaccine supply mess has also shown. The need to reform it on a new moral, political, social and economic basis is increasingly pressing.
On 9 January 2020, a number of leading personalities in the European Parliament, including Guy Verhofstadt, Manfred Weber, Iratxe García Pérez, Ska Keller, and Helmut Scholz, in representation of the liberal, Christian democratic, socialist, green, and left-wing groups, submitted a motion for a resolution to the European Parliament recommending a conference on the future of Europe.
