Elections Européennes 2019-2024 - Européan Elections 2019-2024

The french version


The European elections get a crucial dimension in this context of social, ecological and economic crisis, with the rise of populist movements and a tendency to take refuge in national self-interest. CEMÉA (Training Centers for methods of Active Education) and their partners provide training and support to stakeholders and institutions in the development of European and international projects. The EU remains a place of democracy and rights, which must be constantly strengthened, not least in light of its bureaucratic excesses. This social and solidarity-based Europe “united in diversity”, bearing hope and fighting against inequality, exclusion and discrimination, cannot be achieved without everyone’s commitment. This must be built as an alternative to liberal Europe, which has often forgotten the importance of social questions, hospitality and solidarity. In these European elections, it will be a matter of choosing how we want to deal with these challenges.
For CEMÉA, a movement of popular education present internationally and in the French overseas territories, these issues are related to fundamental rights such as education, employment, health, culture and leisure, which must be dealt with practically at the European level.
For CEMÉA, education and training are matters of public interest and public utility : these services must be excluded from market logic and not be subject to the sole rule of competition. For CEMÉA, education in European citizenship, which contributes to peace education and sustainable development, must be stren- gthened.

  A policy of education and training that meets democratic and public interest challenges

CEMÉA are very committed to public services and common resources, the foundations of social justice and solidarity in democracy.

They reject a liberal conception of education and promote a global approach, which leads to individual and collective emancipation in service of greater citizen participation within the democratic, economic and social spaces of society. CEMÉA follow the Europe 2020 strategy, insofar as they implement lifelong learning in their training paths and support the integration of all education systems – formal and non-formal – and the creation of bridges between them. CEMÉA are an educational and pedagogical research movement that supports innovation in the service of individual talent and critical education, a bulwark against the rise of nationalism that stands against the project of creating a Europe of the peoples.

• Beyond this, CEMÉA wish to strengthen cooperation between European actors in education and lifelong learning, in a social and solidarity-based approach. They also promote the recognition of mobility experiences as learning paths, considered as necessary for all citizens.
• CEMÉA call for the repeal of all directives that hinder the existence of public services or actions of public interest in the countries of the European Union, particularly in relation to training and lifelong learning.

  For a policy of respect for the rights and obligations of citizens, for a fairer, non-discriminatory and united society

The European social sphere can’t only be defined by its labour market regulations. It must be based on living together, learning about differences and recognising all human rights. CEMEA supported the vote of the European Pillar of Social Rights as a first step towards the emergence of a social Europe, beyond an economic approach.
Today’s environment is as local as it is international.
Education for European and global citizenship, in terms of
knowledge, critical reading and understanding, is a challenge for today and tomorrow.
CEMEA are involved in this education in three ways :
- Education to European matters through actions to raise awareness of Europe’s political project, to discover and learn about European diversity.
- Education in Europe by joining educational struggles (such as fighting the commercialisation of education or supporting the right and access to mobility for all and the recognition of non-formal education).
- Education in the world, through geopolitical education and the promotion of all forms of solidarity between groups, peoples, countries and cultures.

• CEMEA demand that European citizenship education be included in any educational action with young people, and in any professio- nal training for educators and social workers.
• CEMEA reaffirm mobility as a right and pro- mote the development of territories, as places of intermingling, diversity and engagement and not places of lasting segregation.
• CEMEA consider migration, whether econo-mic, social, ecological, political, or otherwise as an opportunity for cultural enrichment and act in solidarity with refugees, reaffirming the welcoming aspects of the European continent.

 Putting education at the heart of the ecological transition

CEMÉA demand a social project that takes into account the complexity of social, cultural, economic, environmental and ecological interactions. They support the global objectives of social equality and the preservation of natural resources. In their actions, CEMÉA mobilize the levers that are environmental education, education for all forms of consumption while respecting humanist principles and the preservation of environments, challenging production methods, the use of resources and their sharing.

• • CEMÉA are calling for an educational dimension to be integrated into every European public policy : the laws and direc- tives governing water, waste, air, energy, landscapes, agriculture and transport po- licies, etc. Each of these texts must have an educational component.
• CEMÉA suggest that European Union support the States to strengthen lifelong environmental education, including all forms of awareness (information, training and communication) in the sense of lear- ning for all about another way of inhabi- ting the Earth.
• CEMÉA act for an evolution of the mo- des of production and consumption. In this context, they ask for the legally-man- dated product guarantee to be extended to five years in order to combat planned obsolescence.

 Faced with the challenges of ci- tizenship, education and culture, building European Internet regulation and demo- cratic governance

In a context of industrial and American domination through the GAFA companies, inducing a commercialisation of education and human relations, citizen movements are essential for democratic governance. They have to participate to the regulation of the Internet, through a multi-stakeholder pro- cess where all actors, including civil society, are represented. CEMÉA’s principles and values regarding digital technology and media promote an access for all to quality information, diversity, net neutrality, protection of privacy, data portability, platform plurality and the existence of open, non-market, cooperative and solidarity-based solutions. To these, CEMEA add two priorities : system efficiency, because the climate emergency is inseparable from the digital emergency, and critical emancipating education in media and digital technologies.

• CEMÉA support all guidelines mandating the recognition of common resources accessible to all, for the purpose of public and universal service.
• Continuing the fight against the use of data for advertising purposes (see the fu ture E-Privacy Directive) is necessary to oppose the commodification of daily life ).
• Les Ceméa dénoncent toute directive favorisant la surveillance généralisée
et non consentie des personnes privées…
• CEMÉA, through citizen collectives, demand social-justice oriented decisions regarding the issue of the taxation of GAFA companies and digital industries (the NATU companies, Netflix, AirB&B, Tesla and Uber, etc.)
• CEMÉA denounce any directive favou- ring the general and non-consensual sur- veillance of private individuals...
