Ein Europa der Bürger


Joachim Gauck, der scheidende Präsident – tireless: Nimmermüde –

This year the Dies celebration was organised alongside festivities in Maastricht for this ‘Europe Calling’ anniversary.

In honour of the anniversary UM awarded an honorary doctorate to the President of the Federal Republic of Germany, Joachim Gauck, whom Angela Merkel described as a ‘ tireless advocate for freedom, democracy, and justice’. His record of pro-Europeanism led the University Council to his nomination. Mister Gauck will also deliver the Dies Lecture. Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands attended the presentation of the honorary doctorate.

Bundespräsident Joachim Gauck hat anlässlich der Unterzeichnung des EU-Gründungsvertrags vor 25 Jahren mehr Engagement für das europäische Projekt gefordert.

“Lassen Sie uns Europa wieder stärker zu unserer eigenen Sache machen, zur Sache der Bürgerinnen und Bürger”, sagte Gauck am Dienstag laut Redemanuskript bei einem Festakt in der Universität Maastricht.

Ein gutes Beispiel aus den USA

Far from the corrosive political circus unfolding in Washington, DC, local citizen groups are improving conditions for the people in their own backyards. Although they receive almost no national media attention, these stalwart citizens work tirelessly to make their country a safer, cleaner and more just place to live. One shining example of such a citizen is Tom “Smitty” Smith of Texas, who has advanced this noble work for the last 31 years.
