The evening was organised under Chatham House rules to allow for an open debate. The evening started with the welcome words by Constanze Itzel, Director of the House of European History, who made the museum available to the European Movement in Belgium to host the evening. She encouraged everyone to plan a visit of the museum in the future and learn more about what made Europe the continent it is today. Olivier Hinnekens, Secretary General of the European Movement in Belgium, delivered welcome words, thanking all the participants for coming and reminding everyone, that although the United Kingdom was planning to leave the European Union, it was not switching continents.  Although many in Europe regret the outcome of the referendum, it is important to focus on the future rather than dwell on the past and see how we can shape our future relationship with what will remain one of our closest neighbours. He also introduced the different speakers of the panel composed of H.E. Alison Rose, United Kingdom Ambassador to the Kingdom of Belgium, Claire Tillekaerts, CEO of Flanders Investment & Trade and Reinout Van Hullebus, Area Manager at Brussels Invest & Export. The conference was moderated by Martin Maréchal, Président of the Young European Federalists (JEF). In her keynote speech, Ambassador Rose underlined the need to form the best possible relationship between the UK and the EU after Brexit. With a strong emphasis on the importance of sovereignty, she reaffirmed the necessity for continued cooperation on matters such as security, data protection or education. “Geography matters, history matters, values matter”, she said, stating that neither future partner could be strengthened by fear but only by forming the best possible relationship with strategic partners. Indeed, the future relationship should be one based on shared values and shared common interests and challenges. When addressing the topic of security, Ambassador Rose stressed the importance of strong cooperation within the scope of NATO, inviting all Member States to respect the 2% commitment for defence spending. This included Belgium. Joint operations between Belgium and UK are to be continued and strengthened, she said. Regarding the UK vision for the future relationship, Ambassador Rose asked for the European Union to treat its neighbour as “more than a standard third country”. She reiterated the importance of security and economic partnerships, explaining that Brexit did not mean that the British people felt less European, but had a different vision of what “doing Europe together” meant. Flanders Investment & Trade CEO, Mrs. Tillekaerts explained that for Belgian and British companies a no deal Brexit would be a catastrophe, while noting that recent trade between the two countries has been on the rise despite Brexit. Together with Mr. Van Hullebus, they reaffirmed the strong cooperation between the different regions to assist Belgian companies, protect our economic interests and provide the best business environment possible during the transition period. The two trade experts also emphasized the need for some sectors of activity trading primarily with the UK, such as textile or fruit, to explore also other markets in order to mitigate their risks.  This was partially due to Brexit, but was also advice given to any exporter to exclusively reliant on one dominant export market (such as fruit exports to Russia). The audience also took an active part in the debate. Many questions concerned the exact nature of the future trade agreement between the EU and the UK or the new form of defence cooperation. Ambassador Rose clarified and reaffirmed UK’s positions. Some of the questions also examined the possibility of a second referendum or if fake news could have influenced the results. The debate was followed by a “mix and mingle” moment where the participants and panellists had the chance to continue the discussions around a glass of wine and some nibbles.   Find all the photos of the event on Flickr."

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 was held, which laid the groundwork for the establishment of the European Movement and the foundations of the European Union itself. During her keynote speech, European Movement International President Eva Maydell MEP stated: “Now more than ever we need to stand up for what we hold dear, we need to speak up for what we consider to be true, we need to come forward and be the change we want to see in the world around us. If this gathering is to do anything, it must be to remind us that Europe is not just institutions or nations, politicians or politics. It is each and every one of us, citizens of Europe.” Minister of the Interior and Deputy Prime Minister of The Netherlands, Ms. Kajsa Ollongren also told the audience: “The ambition demonstrated by that congress [Congress of The Hague 1948] is still highly relevant. We too must now dare to look ahead. To the Europe of our children and our grandchildren. We need to decide what kind of Europe we want them to live in. And with that vision of Europe before us, we should take concrete steps to make it a reality.” The two days also served as a discussion arena for the Declaration of The Hague, written and released by the European Movement and partners. Based on the discussions and debates among citizens and stakeholders, in the Declaration, we are calling for:
    • a European democracy that encourages the full participation of all citizens and boosts transparency of decision-making, supported by increased investment in education
    • safeguarding our open societies, defending the rule of law and strengthening the judiciary and free press
    • a deeper economic and monetary union, based on an inclusive and fair economy, more ambitious when harnessing technology, focused on sustainable investments
    • a social model that address widening inequalities, prioritises investment in education, culture, R&D and skills for the jobs of the future
    • the promotion of European heritage and identity, while building on our cultural diversity
    • strong efforts in a transition towards sustainable renewable energy, decarbonisation and the circular economy, reversing biodiversity loss, combating air and water pollution, eliminating toxic chemicals and promoting sustainable agriculture
    • a more holistic approach to migration, addressing its root causes, offering protection to those in need and pursuing the social, cultural and economic inclusion of refugees and migrants in Europe in order to seize the opportunity of the diversity brought by these new Europeans
    • a joint response to current geopolitical challenges, in particular when addressing difficulties with Russia and the rise of extremism and terrorism
    • a common European defence policy and closer security cooperation, supported by a close partnership with the EU’s immediate neighbourhood.
    • a steady involvement and implication of the candidate countries and the countries in the Eastern partnership with whom we will share a common future
    • the full participation of women and young people to ensure that no one is discriminated against, both in the economy and in society as a whole

    Ideas, debates and actions for Europe!

    Who? The European Movement in Belgium (EMB) strives for a united and democratic Europe since 1949. We are a non-profit association that supports European integration by engaging as many citizens as possible in the process. Our organisation is open to all individuals, organisations and companies that support European integration. Consequently, our members come from all kinds of professional, cultural and political backgrounds.

    Why? In our view it is essential that the public continues to acknowledge the relevance of the European project. This is, today's global challenges can no longer be addressed by countries separately. It however remains to be debated how these challenges should be addressed at the European level. We want to actively spark such debate on European policies in order to make citizens aware of and involve them in the process of European integration.

    What? The EMB organises a variety of activities that all have a couple of characteristics in common. They spark debate on the EU and they include an educational or awareness-raising aspect. Youngsters often play a major role. The EMB’s youth committee (JEF Belgium) also organises its own activities. These activities mostly take place in the Belgian university towns of Leuven, Ghent, Brussels, Bruges, Louvain-La-Neuve and Liège.

    How? All of our activities are organised by a Secretariat which is guided by a Board of Directors. Moreover, the EMB acts as one of the 42 national councils of the European Movement International. As a non-profit organisation, the EMB is supported by various members, private sponsors and governmental institutions which are all in favour of European cooperation.

    Young European Federalists (or JEF) is a pan-European youth movement that defends the idea of ​​a federal Europe since 1972. JEF has no political colour but is resolutely pro-European. JEF Europe counts 35 national sections and over 35,000 members who strive for a more democratic Europe. The Belgian section of JEF has local sections in Ghent, Louvain, Brussels, Louvain-la-Neuve, Liège and Bruges.

    JEF Belgium also serves as the youth committee of the European Movement in Belgium: JEF brings together young people on behalf of the European project to discuss, take action and commit to a stronger, more democratic and federal Europe. How do we accomplish this? Debates, educational weekends, international seminars, visits to the European institutions and street actions for JEF members and all young people interested in Europe. In addition, JEF works closely together with the European Movement in Belgium and with other youth organisations for which it receives support from the European institutions.

    Does Europe appeal to you too? Do you want to contribute to the development of a federal Europe? You can always join us for one of our activities or participate in international seminars as a member of JEF: we welcome you with pleasure! Do you want to become a member of JEF? Become one of our locals! As a member you will receive a regular newsletter, be able to participate in all activities of the European Movement-Belgium as well as international seminars with other young Europeans.

    *** invitation en français ***

    2016 fut une année mouvementée pour l’Union Européenne. Pourtant notre continent reste un havre de paix pour beaucoup qui fuient la guerre. Depuis 2013 nombreux réfugiés cherchent aussi leur place en Europe.

    En ce début d’année nous souhaitons insister sur ce qui nous unit comme (nouveaux et anciens) Européens plutôt que sur ce qui nous divise.

    Le Mouvement Européen en Belgique en coopération avec MEDEA et le réseau belge de la Fondation Anna Lindh invitent leurs membres à l’occasion de notre soirée culturelle 'Destination Europe'.

    Goutez la cuisine syrienne et libanaise de Siréas, une asbl Bruxelloise qui engage des réfugiés entre autre dans leur formation hôtelière ou profitez de la musique de "Refugees Got Talent" qui a pour but de promouvoir des artistes migrants.

    When? 23 February 2017 (starting at 7pm) Where? Press Club Brussels Europe (Rue Froissart 95, 1040 Brussels) How? You can subscribe via the contact form below or by e-mail to info@mouvement-europeen.be You haven't renewed your membership for 2017? You can do it here!"
