“I started in April 2018 thinking we needed to rediscover the humanistic spirit of the Renaissance to speed our journey on the path to a sustainable Europe. On the back of Brexit and ahead of the European elections, I knew civil society had a vital role to play to steer the European economy and society towards more sustainable and smart models.

At the end of my mandate, I can say Europe has once again shown its resilience.

Nationalists and Eurosceptics were defeated in the European elections and how Europe has dealt with the COVID-19 pandemic delivered an undisputable blow to their fake narrative. The EU has taken unprecedented measures and in a few months broke taboos carved in stone, protecting our citizens and communities and investing in a strong strategy for our future, with the broadest consensus ever.

Today, I am more and more convinced that my three Presidency priorities - Sustainable Development, Peace and Culture – remain at the core of this Renaissance for Europe.”
