PES office will be closed until 18th August and as a result no new blogs will be published until that date. The issues facing Europe, however, do not go on vacation. The debate must go on. Yourspace, as always, remains your space and you may comment on blog posts.
With European elections next June, campaigning will be the hot topic when we return in mid-August. We already have posts on expat campaigning and the use of social-networking websites and look forward to many more. ‘How do we turn our political ideas and visions into great campaigns?’ Empowered with a common manifesto, how best can the PES communicate this to European voters in order to create a New Social Europe?
We look forward to hearing your ideas on this topic and many others. In the meantime hear the assessment of party leaders José Sócrates, Caroline Gennez, François Hollande, Mircea Geoana and Helle Thorning-Schmidt on our manifesto consultation.
And let us know if there is a hot topic you would like us to organize a debate on…Author : pesmanifesto
