Individual members meet all across Europe

Individual members are an active and dynamic part of the ALDE Party. They meet across Europe in meetings, big and small.

Last week, individual members and their friends met in the north of France to discuss.

On Friday 16 February, Individual Members from the north of France held a conference in Lille. Nearly 60 people exchanged views on “The Sahel as a mirror of the problems in the world”. After a global presentation by ALDE Individual Members in France country coordinator Yves Robert (a former Special Advisor to the Prime Minister of Niger and Advisor to the Government of Mali) a lot of questions were raised concerning population growth (from 113 million today, to 335 million in 2050), economic development, climate, water and terrorism. During the concluding remarks it was observed that the best way forward is to develop a Marshall plan for the Sahel.
