On 24 and 25 May, the European Movement International (EMI) celebrated its 70th anniversary in The Hague with the two-day event ‘Sharing Europe’. Citizens, policy-makers, trade unions, civil society and business came together to discuss the main issues facing Europe today, including: sustainability, migration, security, labour rights, new economic models and democracy over two days of panel debates and agora sessions.
The second day of celebrations took place in the Ridderzaal in the Dutch Parliament, where the 1948 Congress of The Hague had been held, and which laid the groundwork for the establishment of the European Movement and the foundations of the European Union itself.
The ALDE Party is a member of the European Movement International, which is the largest pan-European network of pro-European organisations.
ALDE was represented by EMI Vice President Federica Sabbati, who chairs the EMI working group on “A social, sustainable, competitive and prosperous Europe”.
