We invite five EA members to help us shaping this year’s Open Assembly in Berlin!

Are you a member of European Alternatives?

Do you want to participate in our next Open Assembly in Berlin?

Tell us why before Friday 15th June!

Europe, we need to talk! We are very excited to announce that we are extending an invitation to five members of European Alternatives (it is also your chance to sign up now to become a member!) to come to Berlin and shape this year’s Open Assembly that will happen on Sunday September 16th.

There is a lot to talk about! We want to discuss the priorities you see coming up for the next two years for civil society in Europe and look in particular how we position ourselves towards the upcoming European Parliament elections in May 2019. Are there already common actions we could join? What issues do we want to see in the campaigns of the political parties? What can we do to stop the shift towards right-wing populism and nationalism?

The day before, on September 15th, we also organise the Congress What comes after the nation-state? in cooperation with the international literature festival in Berlin, and we would be glad to have you there! The weekend of intense debating on Europe’s future will kick off on Friday evening with an informal gathering with music and drinks.
