The challenges are enormous and time is ticking. Our objective is to establish an organisation that brings together scientists from across the EU to stand as independent representatives for the EU parliamentary elections of 2024.
DOCEurope creates an environment that allows independent decision making with representatives that are competent to understand complex matters and capable of taking evidence based decisions. Representatives that are scientifically trained and are willing to interrupt their professional activities for one legislative period only and to work for us, for Europe, out of “duty of care” . This commitment that is limited in time allows independence and full focus.
Where current politicians are expected to follow the party line in order to ensure the continued existence of the party and their positions, difficult but necessary policies that would go against their main electorate are avoided. And polarisation and simplification is used to ensure continued electoral support.
Instead, DOCEurope will be a true alternative for voters who are looking for competence and expect urgent actions based on evidence.
This is not about a political programme that is left, right or centre. This is about allowing for a proper scientific based debate on complex issues, whether climate change, inequality, migrants etc… We must ensure using the vast amount of science already available for proper evidence based decision making, that allows progressing our society with respect for the planet.
The world needs such definite political change towards competence and science. Science has brought progress to the world and remains are main hope to tackle the huge challenges. Science is cross border and has the potential to unite people of different cultures.
Let’s create this basis for real change together, seeking support across society. And let’s aim big and be optimistic so that we once will look back at the moment when we created a new time. When people started trusting governance and are prepared to make important changes to society allowing all to develop and prosper in a world of respect. An era of new stability, where we have learned that history does not need to be repeated if you learn the right lessons. A world in which society as a whole grows to a different level and where most people have benefited from continued education and have learned to understand and respect our planet. Current and future scientific developments will bring even more existential questions, which can only be mastered by a society able to comprehend.
Join us to create and support this organisation as a crucial step towards real change, All ingredients are available, today is an exciting opportunity to bring them together.
