European Socialists with an intense agenda on a Social Europe

PES Leaders

In cooperation with all progressive partner organisations, the PES is planning a series of high-level meetings, conventions, conferences and events in the upcoming months. The goal of this action plan is to come as soon as possible with a firm socialist view on what Europe should look like after the Brexit. A Europe which is more focused on its citizens.

We started this process at the high level progressive summit in Paris this August and the pre-council meeting in Bratislava this September was just another step forward. The PES Council in Prague in December is the biggest and the most decisive event this year”, said the President of the Party of European Socialists Sergei Stanishev.

Leaders and officials from the member parties of the PES family announced a series of upcoming events and discussions. Among them are the Social Europe Summit in Germany in November hosted by the SPD; a PES high level meeting in Malta early next year hosted by the Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat; a Conference on a Social Europe hosted by the Prime Minister of Sweden Stefan Löfven. More events are yet to be announced.

Apart from the high-level meeting, the PES is leading the ongoing discussion on Europe with its member parties. During an official round of meetings with our member parties in all the Baltic Countries, Sergei Stanishev presented them with the European Youth Plan, a significant part of the PES vision on the future of the EU.

Our visits to Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius are just three of the dozens meetings and discussions we are currently attending together with our members. The Socialists and Democrats are the only political family which shows enough unity to take the lead in the process of relaunching Europe and we need everybody on board to achieve that”, Stanishev said.

The Group of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament is putting all of its efforts in a common initiative for the all progressive organisations in the EU and will be announcing it in the next days.
