The clear message sent by voters in the elections for the European Parliament (EP), held on 23-26 May 2019, is that the Europeanist parties continue to have the trust of a large majority of citizens. The centre-right European People’s Party (EPP) and the centre-left Socialists and Democrats (S&D) remain the two largest European parties, but register a considerable decline.

The federal question accompanies the European construction since its inception. The intergovernmental-federal debate was very present in the pioneering Hague Congress of 1948 and was reflected in its timeless resolutions.

The “end of the tunnel” at the end of a decade of economic crisis and the “cold shower” after the Brexit enthusiasm have slightly mitigated the desire of exiting the Eurozone and deconstructing the European Union. However, the example of Italy reveals that a profound diffidence is lying in wait, ready to put wind into anti-European sails.

Much of the history of Berlin relates to the city’s darker past. This is particularly true of the Berliner Mauer, or the Berlin Wall. We have now reached the point where the time since the fall of the Berlin Wall is greater than the time it actually existed. But there is a widespread effort to make sure it is not forgotten.

Herostratus, a modest shepherd from Ephesus (Turkey), went down in history for the single remarkable action he performed during his life: setting on fire the temple of Artemis, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. It had taken one hundred and twenty years and required the vital effort of various generations to build the temple.

The climate movement’s state-of-play

I came to climate activism gradually. In 1989, when my book The End of Nature was published, it was the first book on global warming for a general audience. For the next fifteen years, I worked mainly as a writer and speaker.

The statements of the very young Swedish activist Greta Thunberg – which have gone around the world and produced the spark that, last Friday, brought hundreds of thousands of young people from hundreds of countries worldwide to demonstrate against the inactivity of governments in the face of global warming – reminded me of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale...
