EU40 is the network of Members of the European Parliament addressing those under forty years. The network is being extended to include also interesting key-people in the European Commission and the Council. Especially designed to address those in relevant positions sharing the same generation EU40 sees itself as the future network within the European Unions Institutions. EU40 seeks to gather those who are young, share a generation and are ambitious about politics. We address those who are already playing a leading role in politics and who are most likely to do so in the future. We believe in an approach towards European politics that is not merely based on party politics or national issues. We believe we do not only have the great opportunity to shape the future of Europe but furthermore that we have the responsibility to do this in a sustainable way giving future generations the possibilities and tools to determine their own future. It is not purely our generation we are doing politics for but it is our generation doing politics today and tomorrow. We want Europe to be at its best. Therefore we seek to connect the best. EU40 brings together those who will change the face of Europe – either in the European Parliament, the European Commission or the Council.
