Today, in the light of the current crisis, scepticism and doubt sometimes seem to dominate . However, looking back to what we have achieved in Europe, we should all remain hopeful Europeans. In the year of European citizenship, we encourage you to transmit your hopes through your work and personal commitment to European citizens by joining the Week of Hope, from 23-27 June at the heart of the European Quarter.
