Civil society calls on national leaders to nominate European Commissioners for the Europe we want

As EU heads of states and governments gather in Sibiu, Romania on 9 May to agree on a Strategic Agenda for the next five years, 55 civil society organisations, including ENAR, published a statement urging national leaders to nominate European Commissioners who will support and serve present and future generations, and prioritise environment, quality of life and decent work.

9 May 2019

The Sibiu Summit is set to be the culmination of discussions around the Future of Europe and is presented as a reason to celebrate a more united, stronger and more democratic EU.

We, as civil society, want European policies, rules and standards that protect and safeguard well-being and health, ensure safety and freedom for people, and protect the climate and the environment. Europe needs to lead and support a just transition towards a sustainable economy and society for all people.

The nomination of commissioners should officially take place after the EU elections in May.
