New episode of Liberal Stories focuses on role of Mayors for future of Europe

The fourth episode of Liberal Stories – an exclusive ALDE Party video interview series focusing on Europe’s future – features François Decoster, President of the Renew Europe Group in the Committee of Regions and Mayor of Saint-Omer, France.  

In this episode, Decoster shares his views on how mayors can be the link between European politics and citizens:  

“We really must use more that channel of communication between Europe, territories and citizens. I would like that local politicians could be also European ones. That is to say being channels of communication between the European, regional and local levels and explain what Europe does for our territories.

On how we can face the challenges ahead, Decoster recalls  that our European project is based on common values and that “Europe is really the answer to many challenges of the time.”

He also shares some examples of his initiatives on climate and sustainability, as well as on education and culture.
