Congratulations – you are now President of the European Union!

(Let's pretend for a second that a Presidential role exists and it’s you!)

As the President, you can decide what the most important issues are for Europe.  What would you change to make things better? How would you do that?

In reality, decision-making in the EU is a complex process and does not lie in the hands of just one institution or person. Generally, the European Commission proposes laws which then need to be adopted by the European Parliament and the Council. Each of the EU’s institutions has its own President but they don’t have absolute power, and they can’t interfere in EU countries’ authority.

Ideas

I'd clarify together with all EU countries what our core values als European Union are. Then I'd work towards compliance with these values. I'd work to make sure that solidarity and cooperative behavior are the best option for each member country. A community is only stable if anti-social behavior is swiftly and effectively discouraged. I'd freeze all EU benefits for a country that is breaking the rules.
If i were the president of EU,I would like to start the transnational school, and welcome all the students from EU countries.because it is a good chance for young people from EU to communicate and know the situations of their own countries.
1. The highest salary within a company or an institution is not allowed anymore to be more than 10 times the lowest salary within this company or institution. 2. A ban on (un)necessary business trips: With today's technology, meeting can be hold without flying around. 3. Families should have easier and cheaper access to childcare. Additionally, every job advertisement must be published as a part-time-job (at least 80%) and 20% of all jobs in langer companies must be possible as job-sharing (100% = 2x 50%). Fathers should also have the opportunity to work part-time.
We have to stop nitpicking and focus on the bigger picture, thinking about clear policy outlines. I would also give staff in the European Parliament a normal salary, without expenses, and stop moving the Parliament between Brussels and Strasbourg.
As a Scot, all I want at this point is just to remain a part of the EU!
It’s time to dissolve the European Union. In my opinion it is politically and economically corrupt and socially destructive.
I would stop wasting funds on moving the EU government between Brussels and Strasbourg and reduce the use of luxury modes of transport such as private jets!
If I were the president of the EU, I would... - Give everyone starting from the age of 18 a basic income of 2000 euro, which could be used for health care, education, etc. - Lower the taxes for eco-friendly products and raise the taxes of everything that isn't good for the environment and start up a commision to examine all kind of products. - Make 'recycling bins' mandatory at public places. - Give permission for new buildings only if their production process, materials and functions were 100% green. - Invest in sustainable energy resources and phase out nuclear power. - Offer many workshops: for managers and employees (on environmentally friendly business, satisfied employees, technological evolution,...), for schools and young people (on how to adapt to a changing world, Erasmus+-programmes,...) and for governements and cities (on providing shelter for refugees, urban agriculture, immigration issues,...). - Set up a generalized European organization which would take care of refugees by fixing a residence in a country and offering them an integration course (including learning a language, getting to know European culture and rights and support to get a job). - Support exchange and voluntary programmes. - Support promising and revolutionairy projects on scientifical, cultural, economic and social level. - Lower the voting age to 16 - Set up an independent commision to control all big companies with the authorization to punish them if they'd break the European rules. - Make Europe safe for all minorities (LGBT-people, immigrants, disabled people, religious people & atheïsts, etc.). - Plant more trees and protect more woods. - Promote environmentally friendly lifestyles (vegan/vegetarian, tiny housing, etc.) And so much more...
