ALDE Party held its Council Meeting in Rome, Italy, on 11 December. The event brought together - in person and online - the ALDE Party Bureau, member party delegates and liberals from across Europe to discuss some of Europe’s most pressing challenges as well as other key agenda points, such as the Conference on the Future of Europe. The Council meeting started with an intervention by Sandro Gozi, Secretary General of the European Democratic Party.
Moreover, during the Council meeting several urgency resolutions were discussed, which focused on key topics such as the crisis on the Poland-Belarus border, the threat of a Russian invasion of Ukraine, the diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and associated events, protecting EU citizens from illegitimate surveillance, and more. The adopted resolutions are available in full here.
The next Council meeting will take place in the connection with the ALDE Congress in Dublin in June 2022.
While in Rome, liberals also hosted a series of events such as the 3rd Hans van Baalen Town Hall meeting on the future of Europe in collaboration with one of ALDE Party's member parties in the country, Più Europa. During the event, citizens were able to share their own ideas about the European Union’s and continent’s future. Did you miss live stream of the event? You can watch it here or below.
