Campaign for Europe in Slovenia

by DiEM25 Team

European elections are around the corner, and they will be crucial for the future of the European Union. With Britain preparing to crash out of the EU and right-wing populists threatening to harden borders around it, dark clouds are looming over the EU.
DiEM25 is a rare beacon of light, and some fellow DiEMers are hard at work building electoral wings to directly contest the elections. With the same goal, our DSC will open up the public space in Slovenia for a vigorous debate on what kind of Europe we want. Instead of focusing on national issues — which offer the usual arena for everlasting clashes amongst the established political parties — we have decided to build on the experience of the European Balcony Project event we organized in cooperation with the European Democracy Lab in November. We want to promote debate directly on the European Spring Programme and the Green New Deal as a realistic, practical and desirable alternative for the European Union.
So, on a cold Saturday afternoon in January we huddled together to see how to do this. After a lively back-and-forth we settled on a plan to organize a series of small-scale, focused events across the country to discuss what is wrong with the EU and what can be done to fix it. We plan to start with a loose discussion in a cafe in Kamnik, then continue with a moderated event in Ljubljana, and continue similar events in as many other towns as we can.  We will invite the local media, political parties and other public figures to each.
We invite all members from Slovenia to join us in organising and participating in this campaign. Help us spread the light!
