For JADE “learning by doing” matters more than words, it provides practical assistance and the exchange of experiences. JADE is part of the true European asset – a spirit of Partnership and cooperation. I am glad that JADE is firmly supporting the recent relaunch of the Lisbon Agenda. It is the spirit of JADE that fuels my conviction that as long as Europe is closely collaborating and dynamic, it will be able to achieve even its most ambitious goals.
