Our mission is to fight for our close relationship with Europe and 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 U.K.
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;
Our origins are in fostering peace amongst European countries which helps to build a peaceful global environment
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.
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.
The European Movement is the UK’s largest pro-European Network.
Who we are
We are a grassroots organisation, with a community of tens of thousands of activists and 126 local groups across every nation and region of the UK.
We are an independent all-party pressure group campaigning for a close relationship with European Union, and to ensure that European values, standards, and rights are upheld in British law post-Brexit.
70 years of campaigning
The European Movement was founded 70 years ago by Winston Churchill as an international movement that exists to promote European values of peace, prosperity, and international cooperation.
Following the 2016 referendum, the European Movement UK campaigned in coalition with other pro-European campaign groups as a founding member of the People's Vote campaign.
The world is changing and we are changing with it...
In a post-Brexit world with a weakened and divided opposition, we are playing the vital role of holding the government to account, particularly in regards to Brexit. Furthermore, we are campaigning for European progressive values in the face of the strengthening far-right.
Join the European Movement today to fight for our relationship with Europe, and to ensure that European values, standards, and rights are upheld in Britain.
