Europe has always been a long-term journey, an ongoing experiment in political imagination that is never quite complete. As Europe heads to the voting booths, we stand on the brink of a new future. It is the time to ask ourselves: Are we on the right pathway? What future are we building for our children and grandchildren? In this age of climate change, rapid digital transformation, geopolitical uncertainty, and environmental destruction, what legacy do we want to leave behind?

Dive into the latest news, explore our insightful blog posts, and join us in our campaign for a EU #FitForFutureGenerations.

Spotlight on

Cross-party support for Future Generations agenda

A coalition of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) from the four main political groups has issued a joint open letter calling on the European Council to prioritise the rights and interests of future generations in the upcoming political cycle. The MEPs express concern that these rights are not adequately ensured in the current EU decision-making processes and propose the  adoption of the asks of the Future Generations Initiative to address this.

The signatories are MEPs Damian Boeselager (Greens), Saskia Bricmont (Greens), Carlos Coelho (EPP), Ciarán Cuffe (Greens), Anna Júlia Donáth (Renew), Peter Liese (EPP), Francisco Guerreiro (Greens), and Alessandra Moretti (S&D). Read the letter here.
