This way, we activate others to think about their Europe.
We are looking for partners / organisations / brands / individuals / funds to join our decentralised and horizontal collective in order to bundle our forces in the run-up to the European Elections of May 2019. Contact us below and we’ll get in touch as soon as possible.
