I Choose Europe

The « I choose Europe » initiative intends to call citizens who believe in the European unity to come out and vote, choose Europe against the European project of the nationalists, to speak up for the Europe they want for the future. The project encourages expression of choice by voting for a Stronger, Democratic, Social and Federal Europe. It also intends to call candidates and policy makers across Europe to rally around a road-map of reforms leading to such a Strong, Democratic Social and Federal Europe that can inspire the trust of the citizens and deliver on their expectations. 

Check out the Belgian candidates to the European Parliament who signed our pledge.
