As the European Union struggles with the terrorist and the immigration crises, questions are increasingly being raised: Where is Europe going? What should it stand for? How can it cope with the future if there are so many rifts between member states, and so many demands being made on its resources? Will terrorism and immigration destroy Schengen and solidarity between European countries?
It all goes back to what people expect from Europe. The question applies equally to Malta, more than a decade after Malta’s entry in the EU. Where do we stand on the issues?
Starting from today’s socio-economic realities in Malta, representatives from different age groups will address a Conference entitled ‘What are the Maltese expecting from Europe?’ The discussion will feature interventions by two youths and two educators. Glenn Micallef and Naomi Cachia will present view points on the realities and challenges facing the EU as experienced by young people. Joseph Mangani and Elizabeth Ebejer, two educators, will cover various subjects related to Malta’s EU membership as well as wider EU issues.
The Head of the PL Delegation at the European Parliament Alfred Sant, whose office is organising the Conference with the collaboration of S&D, will address the Conference.
It is being held at the Cortile Farmhouse, Naxxar on Friday 04 December at 18.30hrs. The public is being invited to participate in the conference. No pre-booking is needed. However, those who need further information can contact Dr. Sant’s Office on email address email@example.com or phone number 21490705.
A reception will follow the Conference
