A Union of Values — who unites Europeans?
Europe is not just an economic, political or strategic union; moreover, the European Union’s Member States are united by common European values, respect for the legal continuity of the state and support for human rights. The “Union of Values” is undoubtedly capable of mitigating intersections and conflicts between states, but it requires a strong common value base. This time we invite you to question what are the most important values that bind EU countries and discuss the challenges of the rule of law in Europe. The interview will be attended by: — Ambassador Raimundas Karoblis; — Žaneta Vaitkuvienė, Head of Strategic Planning and Investment Division of Plungė District Municipality Administration; Monika Arlauskaitė, member of the Youth Europe Team; The discussion will take place on 27 October at 16:00 p.m. Plungė District Municipality Public Library (Parko str. 7), entrance — only with a passport of opportunities. We invite you to come and discuss the future of Europe! The event is organised by: Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Lithuania, Eastern European Studies Centre and Public Library of Plungė District Municipality. Event partner: Youth Europe Team.

Event reportOn 27 October, the public library in Plungė hosted a discussion “The Union of Values — who unites Europeans?”. Ambassador Raimundas Karoblis, Head of Strategic Planning and Investment Division of Plungė District Municipality Administration Žaneta Vaitkuvienė, and Monika Arlauskaitė, member of the Youth Europe Team, took part in the discussion. The discussion was moderated by Dorota Sokolovska, project assistant at the Centre for Eastern European Studies. The participants stressed that the values of the European Union are important to each of us and, although we do not always fully agree on the details, we have a strong consensus on the principles. According to them, a significant part of the securities declared by the Member States of the Community is also being transformed into practical initiatives that are important to each of us, such as: the Schengen area, or the Erasmus+ programme for exchange of students and students, which embodies the idea of free movement and unity. The participants of the discussion agreed that, despite frequent criticism, most of the policy guidelines of the European Union coincide with the interests of Lithuania, and one of the most important problems of the whole European policy is the alignment of the mistakes of local politicians with the decisions taken in the Community. Not only did Plunge talk about the importance of the values of the European Union in our daily lives, but also about the need for regions to be increasingly encouraged to think in accordance with the principle of “act locally — think globally”. The need to maintain a stronger focus on the development of the regions of the European Union was also highlighted.
