In the current context, is it possible to develop a green and social Europe?

-Is the prioritization of a green Europe feasible in a period of economic crisis? -Is a more social Europe the solution to fight extreme right?

EPN has the pleasure to invite you to its first conference organised in the context of the European Parliament Elections of 2014, where the keynote speakers, Bart Staes, member of the European Parliament and Saskia Bricmont, Ecolo candidate for the European Elections, will discuss the future of Europe. This event will be held on the 4th of March between 19.30 and 21.30.With the European Parliament elections coming up, we are all wondering which political movement is going to take the lead, especially now that European citizens are divided into two main groups: the Eurosceptics and the pro-Europeans. These elections mark a turning point for the future of Europe, which is why we must all be well aware of what is being proposed and what we should expect from our soon-to-be parliament representatives. What are their visions of Europe? How do they intend to fight the crisis and promote their values and ideas at the same time? Is it possible? What is their reaction and how are theyplanning to respond to the alarming rise of the extreme right in the European Parliament?The debate will be monitored by  Serdar Yesilyurt, director of the EU Representation Office of the Turkish Confederation of Businessmen and Industrialists (TUSKON).The topic of the event will be: ‘In the current context, is it possible to develop a green and social Europe?’ It will be divided in two subtopics:-           Subtopic 1:  Is the prioritization of a green Europe feasible in a period of economic crisis? This subtopic will be presented by Mr. Bart Staes (MEP of Groen! & candidate for the European Elections).-           Subtopic 2:  Is a more social Europe the solution to fight extreme right?
