a group of young Europeans draft a proposal appealing to a new generation of Europeans for the construction of a new idea of Europe for present and future European citizens because the dominant logic of 'Europe as a market' does not express the aspirations of young Europeans or the potential of the Union to realise them and locks Europe into a disappionting cycle of economic rationality.

He calls for an urgent multiplication of efforts and initiatives by intellectuals and artists on behalf of Greece.
