ALDE Party Congress 2014

20/11/2014 to 22/11/2014
Lisbon, Portugal

The 35th ALDE Party Congress will take place from Thursday 20 to Saturday 22 November 2014 at the Centro de Congressos de Lisboa, Portugal.

The ALDE Party looks forward to welcoming delegates, guests, sponsors & press to the first ever ALDE Party Congress to be held in Portugal.

For 3 days, liberals & democrats from across Europe will gather to discuss resolutions which will shape the direction of European liberalism over the coming months & years; as well as getting together for a wide range of social & networking opportunities; fringe meetings; seminars & discussions.

The ALDE Party Bureau suggests launching a reflection process at the Congress to “reclaiming liberalism” in order to initiate a debate about the fundamental policy priorities for Liberals in the 21st Century. Together with Liberal International and ELF, different initiatives will be planned in the coming year.
