Introduction by the

Sandro Gozi

Here are a few words to introduce the methodology of this Manifesto, in which a health-related proposal is dedicated to our late colleague Véronique Trillet-Lenoir, an eminent doctor and respected politician who passed away on 9 August 2023.

We wanted this Manifesto to be as informative as possible so that readers could use our ideas according to their areas of interest and, by turning the pages, get to know us better and understand our philosophy.

But before we go any further, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all our colleagues, working groups and member parties for their commitment and dedication to this initiative. Without their valuable input, this process would not have been possible.

So, how did we come up with this manifesto?


Which outlines and illustrates the principles and values of our party


Detail the concrete measures to be taken.

As you can see, all the proposed actions (right-hand page) start with an action verb to instil the idea in the reader’s mind that we are on the move and have the will to move forward. 

How did we come up with 300 priority proposals?

Following a meticulous review of all the work, we have drawn up 4 chapters:

300 may seem a daunting number, but we have developed a rigorous process to achieve this result, structure our message, and ensure that everyone uses the same language.

Under the leadership of one or more elected officials, each working group conducted an in-depth analysis of the problems and opportunities specific to its field and formulated concrete proposals to solve them.
