ALDE Party hosts Manifesto town hall in Denmark

On 16 June, ALDE Party hosted the first in a series of town hall meetings to hear from citizens and gather inputs for the ALDE Party 2024 Manifesto during ‘Folkemødet’, a yearly democracy festival taking place on the Danish island of Bornholm. Over 300 participants shared their thoughts and concerns on some of Europe’s biggest questions, such as security and defence, the war in Ukraine and rule of law challenges in the European Union.  

During the town hall, the audience was able to exchange with liberal leaders from ALDE Party members Venstre and Radikale Venstre, including European Commission Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager, Morten Løkkegaard MEP, Morten Helveg MEP and Henrik Bach Mortensen, Member of the ALDE Party Manifesto drafting committee.  

This series of town halls will continue to travel across Europe in the coming months, where ALDE Party will meet with citizens to hear their thoughts and concerns ahead of the European elections in 2024. The outcome of these discussions will feed into the ALDE Party Manifesto drafting process.   

Venstre hosted several additional panel discussions in collaboration with ALDE Party during the Folkemødet. Topics included cybersecurity, EU strategic autonomy, Europe’s shifting geopolitical landscape, the energy crisis, agriculture and other pressing issues for Europeans, with a range of distinguished panellists from Denmark and beyond. ALDE Party Co-President Senator Timmy Dooley joined in for a ‘European Breakfast’ event to discuss and debate issues such as the green transition, Brexit and the future of transatlantic relations, and exchanged with liberal colleagues from Radikale Venstre in a meeting on the sidelines of the event.
