"The impact of Christian thinking on the European project: past, present and future"


The European Christian Political Movement warmly invites you to

"The impact of Christian thinking on the European project: past, present and future"

European Parliament, Brussels, Belgium, 3 December 13:30-17:00 There is no doubt that Christianity had a great impact on the start of European cooperation in the 20th centrury. The European project was initiated by founding fathers who, inspired by the Christian faith, had a vision to promote peace and reconciliation in Europe. To what extent is the European Union, more than half a century later, still driven by this vision?

ECPM organizes a conference to reflect on what influence and real impact Christianity has had in shaping the European history based on the ideas an vision of the founding fathers; the impact it has in shaping core European values like peace, solidarity, dignity and equality; the role and impact of these values in today's Europe and within the European Union and as a base for developing dialogue and collaboration with other religions in promoting common values.

We hope to meet you in Brussels!
