As Hungary takes the helm of the European Union presidency, a unique opportunity arises to reignite the flame of unity and progressivism within the nation and across the continent. Against the backdrop of challenges posed by authoritarian rule, Budapest becomes the stage for a gathering of democratic, socialist, and green activists determined to shape a brighter future.

Co-organised with Solidar and in collaboration with Hungarian partners and civil society organisations, this edition of Call to Europe not only symbolises a resurgence of hope but also underscores the urgent need to refocus on how Europe serves its people.

With discussions centred on key issues like the European industrial renewal, the socio-ecological transition and the gender-equality agenda, participants will delve into the intricate balance between economic, social, and climate action.

At the heart of these deliberations lies a shared vision for a Europe that prioritises sustainable infrastructure, accessible public services, universal welfare, quality housing, and renewable energy. It is a model that sees these elements not just as ideals but as essential drivers of growth and prosperity for all. 

In Budapest, amidst the exchange of ideas and the forging of alliances, this conference marks a pivotal moment in the journey toward a Europe that truly delivers value for its citizens, guided by principles of solidarity and progress.
