More than 250 non-government organisations from across Europe have today released an alternative vision for a more democratic, just and sustainable Europe.

Intended to influence the debate on the future direction of Europe, this alternative vision is endorsed by organisations representing a multitude of public interest issues, including labour rights, culture, development, environment, health, women's rights, youth, and anti-discrimination groups.

Friends of the Earth Europe is monitoring EU Structural and Cohesion funds and campaigning for reform of these investments. We want to see the funds used in ways that aid Europe's transformation to a resource-efficient society - one whose energy consumption is low and based on renewable sources, and where biodiversity is protected.


No harmful social or environmental impacts should be allowed to result from these investments.
