COOPERATION IS KEY
The challenges we face in France are often similar to those of our neighbors. The fight against inequalities, the necessary adaptation and fight against climate change, education, training… The issues echoe each other and the know-how of the involved players complement each other. We join forces with European partners on the solutions to the major challenges of our time, to achieve fairer and more sustainable European societies. We strongly believe that, through cooperation, we will have a bigger impact and be much more effective in finding solutions to our common challenges.
