Civil Society Pushes the 3SI Forward

Although with its problems the 3SI can help the region reach maturity

17 June 2022

Next week leaders and top diplomats will be meeting in Riga, a month ago members of civil society of these countries met in the same place.

As members of the European Union, Poland and other Central European countries have reached maturity after 18 years, it is time to look at the club we joined in 2004. It is time to start thinking more seriously about ourselves, to cut the umbilical cord and look at our region from the perspective of a person with full rights and responsibilities. The Three Seas Initiative (3SI) could be a vehicle for achieving this. 

Editor’s Pick: Czech 3SI Regional Redemption

Integration with the European Union has so far determined the direction of our development. EU financial support had an unprecedented impact on the transformation of our countries. The dominant story was a return to Europe and the West. However, the political and economic reality was changing, and the story was losing its relevance and attractiveness. New ideas are needed, a new vision of our participation in this not ideal, but the best international organisation available. It is time to take matters into our own hands.
