Tomorrow, on 27 November, Vice-President Margaritis Schinas will host the 15th annual high-level meeting with religious leaders organized by the Commission. The theme of the meeting which will gather eight representatives of religious organisations from across Europe will be ‘the European way of life’. The meeting will look at how the current crisis may have affected and challenged this way of life and the responses to these challenges. The meeting will also address other recent developments such as the Migration and Asylum Pact, Inclusion and Integration as well as progress towards an EU Health Union. Since 2009, the dialogue with churches, religions, philosophical and non-confessional organisations is enshrined in the Lisbon Treaty (Article 17 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union). The press conference of Vice-President Schinas with European Parliament Vice-President Roberta Metsola and religious leaders will take place tomorrow at 12:00 and will be streamed live on EbS.
