2021 European Movement Conference

Building bridges, not barriers!


Join us on 27 March 2021 for an online event that will generate discussion while celebrating and empowering our movement and its activists.


The 2021 European Movement Virtual Conference will bring activists and supporters together with influencers and decision makers to discuss both the key issues we still face three months on from the Brexit deal, and how our movement is vital to shaping the UK's relationship with Europe.

Featuring keynote speeches, panel discussions, workshops, Q&As, social events, networking, a virtual exhibition, and more, the event will be an immersive and engaging opportunity to hear how YOU can be the change in your local community.

It is the latest in a series of events designed to generate discussion while supporting, enhancing, and empowering our network of grassroots activists.
