On Wednesday 15 November European Movement chair Dr Mike Galsworthy will join us to discuss how we build the popular wave back to EU membership.
Mike's talk will be held in William Mong Hall, Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge CB2 3HU, and starts at 6.30 PM (doors open 6.10 PM).
We expect that you'll have plenty of thoughts and questions for Mike, so his talk will be followed by a discussion with the audience, and the event will finish at 7.45 PM.
About the talk
The tide is turning for 'Rejoin' rapidly. Some polls showing that a referendum held now would see 63% for rejoining the EU versus 37% for staying out. It is far more dramatic amongst the youth, will some polls putting 18-24-year-olds at 86% for rejoin. But with the major UK-wide political parties avoiding the topic at every turn, how does this sea-change in mood get actualised into joining the EU again? How do we ensure that this new drive for membership stays energetic, topical and does not get stuck half-way like Norway or Switzerland? Strategy, momentum, visibility and resources all have parts to play in how we collectively build a popular wave back to EU membership.
