"Il faut tout changer oui, mais il ne faut pas changer l'essentiel. Et l'essentiel c'est que l'Europe reste un projet de paix et un projet d'avenir. C'est ce à quoi je m'engage devant cette assemblée (...) Je reste ce que je suis – je vais, jusqu'à mon dernier souffle, combattre pour l'Europe unie."

"Changes are needed, yes, but let's not change the essence. And the essence is that Europe is a project of peace and project for the future. That's what I am committed to and I commit to this before you today. (...) I am what I am – to my last breath I will fight for Europe, for united Europe"

+Roberto Beccherle because unlike us he studied economics. And unlike a lot of other politicians he knows how to manage complicated diplomacy's relationships.

fanatical and active are different things :)
i hope you don t misunderstand me, i m not trying to convince you to subscribe to EU official channels (i think i m only subscribed to 1, most are non official media that shows whats going on, and those are around 3 i think). neither i said for you to promote EU, its like when you talk about your government to your country fellow citizen, you talk about what is it doing or going to do, you don t promote it like if it is a new chocolate that you have to try. if you don t like something, talk with other voters to change it, we don t blindly defend our governments or erase it because they have done something wrong. you don t need to become a political activist. to inform yourself and talk to other people doens t mean you have to become a political activist. people follow what happens in their football club and they don t need to be fanatics. we can easily follow what a shop we like has new and we don t need to frantically be on top of it.
 why to spend so much time on politics? when did i even mentioned that? i just check for new stuff in a couple of minutes PER WEEK, if there is something interesting i may decide to investigate better, but we Europeans go to the extreme of having no idea of whats going on.
 if something important happens people should talk about it, its obvious, but we don t care and only realize when we loose something important.
 and to be honest, being subscribed to information channels, pop ups extremely quickly show new stuff in seconds.
 its not about dedicating your life to politics but just don t be complete away from what is happening.
 i think you are expressing a common continental European thinking, i have the experience indeed that with english and americans, political conversations start easily, but with continental Europeans, there is an allergy to talk about it.
i think that  belonging to EU has slowly forced many Europeans to start getting their attention caught on international issues that affect our countries.
 about what you are saying about its the politicians job, NO, i m sorry, things are not like that, we see what has the politician been doing, saying etc and we tell him what to do with our vote and attention. they are not babysitters, they see what they should do by seeing how we vote and the poles say.
 thats how it is on the long run.

Agreement on  European Border and Coast Guard reached

The agreement reached today on the creation of a European Border and Coast Guard proves that Europe can act resolutely to solve common challenges! It is an important step in managing migration and ensuring internal security and the free movement of persons inside the EU.
 
As of now, Europe treats the protection of its borders as a common mission of solidarity.

The European Border and Coast Guard will support Member States in border management and will be able to identify and intervene to address weaknesses in advance, and not when it's too late. Member States will continue to keep their competence and sovereignty over their borders. They will continue to manage the external border day to day.
 
Here is an overview of the new agency that will become operational this summer: http://europa.eu/!Nu47UK

+jh5kl they'll likely go anyway. The UK economy is dominated by that if England so I very much doubt it'll hurt any more than #Brexit itself and the FTSE is already recovering. Kneejerk reactions always cause controversy. It's the banking crisis fallout, caused by greed and arrogance, that has likely pushed so many Brits to vote out as well.

Four more EU countries have today increased their call for their own referendums so is this the start of a major transformation for the EU, regardless of the fact that the UK won't be part of that bureaucratic gravy train.

Europe's open invitation to the world to reflect with us how our policies, partnerships and resources can best be put into use to support global development, eradicate poverty once and for all, and shift our planet onto a sustainable, inclusive and prosperous path.

US Secretary of State John Kerry met with Jean-Claude Juncker and Federica Mogherini in Brussels today

Federica Mogherini said: "Your visit today is extremely important for us and for all Europeans. Our partnership stays strong and crucial not only for the benefit of our people but also for peace and security in the world."

John Kerry said: "The interest and the values which have united us for such a long period of time did not change with the UK vote. (...) We stay focused on those interests and those values. (...) The United States cares about a strong EU. Why? Because there isn't one issue on which we worked today, whether it is climate change, counter-terrorism, migration - you name it - that is not global. We are working together." +U.S. Department of State

That is a load of crap - Nigel Farrage is a racist - no one but whites around him. Young people do not want to wait to grow old and to listen to bullshit from small minded uneducated dorks who cannot stand change and people that are different from them. They have seen what is possible, and they want it. They do not want to go back to the 1950s. The UK will be no longer. Little England will continue, but it ain't gonna rule the waves anymore, because Brittania is gone baby!

Three Polish firms developed a system for removing space debris with nets but needed to finance scaled-up tests. The EU helped them find backers, and they are now poised to enter a space clean-up market worth €450m.

I'm seriously amazed that too this day heat is wasted from cookers and fridge freezers with no energy recovering at all.

Why is that not being tackled as we are talking a large amount of heat wasted in such ways, indeed I heat my house in winter by just baking a potato in the evening and residual heat from cooker heats the home. Summer time I do not eat baked potatoes.
