Mission and Values

Our Mission

Our mission is to fight for our close relationship with Europe building back what we have lost brick by brick. 

We are holding Boris Johnson's government to account for this bad Brexit deal for Britain, and campaigning to ensure that European values, standards, and rights are upheld in the UK.

In a post-Brexit world, our values are at risk, from the undermining of human rights to compromising environmental standards. We are campaigning to maintain European values in the UK.

To achieve this mission we are working with our tens of thousands of activists, our membership community, and our partners in Europe through the European Movement International network. Together we are advocating for European values, standards and rights to be maintained in the UK.

We are acting now to ensure that the future we have been fighting for over the past 70 years is upheld. Find out more about what we do.



The Movement's Values

The European Movement UK reflects and upholds the fundamental values of the EU;

1. Peace

Our origins are in fostering peace amongst European countries which helps to build a peaceful global environment

2.  Democracy

We believe that citizens should be able to vote for elected representatives of their choice at all levels of government, from local to national to European.

3. Safety

We want to help build a world which is safe now and in the future.

4. Human rights, worker rights and equality

We seek to enhance the protection of human rights, worker rights and equality.

5. Freedom of movement

Our goal is to safeguard the freedom of movement which is possible as a member of the EU for generations to come. Both for UK citizens who want to travel and work abroad and for citizens of other EU countries who want to come here to work and to live.

6. Partnership, collaboration and common interest

There is more that links us than separates us and we can achieve more when we combine our collective efforts.

7. Celebration of diversity and other cultures

What we share is precious and difference gives us more to discover.

8. Respect and tolerance

Each one of us is uniquely important.

9. Environmental protection

Wildlife and nature is intrinsically valuable and we need to conserve our natural world and effectively combat climate change.

10. Economic certainty

We support an environment where there is the economic certainty which underpins quality of life.
