Our values (archived)

The process on the PES declaration of principles is about to culminate with its adoption at the PES Council in Brussels on the 24th of November. Thanks to all participants on Re:new whose contributions to a process that lasted over a year were most valuable.

Far from being an end in itself, the declaration of principles is the first step in the first pan-European political renewal process. Now we move on to turning our values and principles into action with the PES Fundamental Programme that starts at the Convention in Brussels on the 25th and 26th of November. We need your input!
