For Europeans, the building of Europe is the great adventure of the modern era. Immediately after Ireland said "no" to the Lisbon Treaty, the French presidency of the European Union has been challenged with finding concrete solutions to problems such as global climate change, energy, immigration, and alimentation. Consul General Mourier will explain why the world can be reasonably confident in the future of the European Union.
