  • Party Conferences

    In 2022 the European Movement visited all of the major party conferences with the aim of increasing the reach and engagement of the movement, promoting our cross-party credentials, and recruiting more members and supporters.

    As a grassroots-led organisation, our volunteers and activists were central to our plans at all of the conferences with them helping us to operate exhibition stands, hand out leaflets, and maximise engagement with delegates.

    A highlight of the conference season can be found below.

    LABOUR PARTY CONFERENCE - LIVERPOOL

    Taking place in Liverpool, the European Movement had a big presence at the Labour Party conference.

    The movement hosted several fringe events both inside the conference and in the city, and we had representatives speaking at other events. We also hosted a busy exhibition stand which engaged with hundreds of people throughout the conference.

    Not only that but our Director of Communications, Pablo, was a featured guest on Politics Live on the final day of conference which highlighted the effect that our presence there had.

    CONSERVATIVE PARTY CONFERENCE - BIRMINGHAM

    At the Conservative Party Conference the European Movement hosted a busy fringe event in conversation with Lord Michael Heseltine and David Gauke.

    The event was extremely popular with photos seeming to indicate that we had more attendees than the official event taking place in the main hall at the same time.

    GREEN PARTY CONFERENCE - HARROGATE

    Taking place in Yorkshire, the Green Party conference saw us speak to hundreds of people at our exhibition stand and engage with party members on a range of European issues at two events - a European Movement fringe event and a panel discussion in the main hall.

    CO-OPERATIVE PARTY CONFERENCE - LEEDS

    The European Movement had a presence at the Co-Operative Party conference in Leeds, where our local group Leeds for Europe hosted a stall telling delegates how we are in a Battle for the Soul of our Country due to Brexit.

    LIBERAL DEMOCRAT CONFERENCE - BRIGHTON

    Unfortunately the Liberal Democrat party conference was cancelled due to the passing of HM Queen Elizabeth II, but the European Movement had a big presence planned including fringe events, networking, and an exhibition stand.
