LauranneLauranne Devillé

Diplômée en sciences économiques et en affaires européennes, Lauranne a travaillé dans le secteur privé et au sein des institutions européennes et est actuellement à la recherche d’un emploi. Partisane européenne, elle est avant tout une citoyenne ordinaire certaine que l’Europe peut davantage agir pour faire face aux défis de société actuels.
Convaincue de la viabilité et du bénéfice du projet européen, elle pense que cela doit passer par une plus grande participation citoyenne et par une plus grande efficacité et unité de l’Europe sur les plans sociaux, économiques et énergétiques.
Cette efficacité selon elle devrait avant tout viser la création d’emplois, le pouvoir d’achat et la défense des PME ainsi que le renforcement du rôle de l’Europe sur la scène internationale.
Stand Up est pour Lauranne le moyen de défendre une Europe plus efficace, plus réaliste et surtout plus à l’écoute des réalités que vivent quotidiennement les citoyens européens.
