DiEM25 teams up with The Sanders Institute to launch the Progressive International

DiEM25 is teaming up with The Sanders Institute to launch the Progressive International, a movement that will mobilise people around the world behind a shared vision of democracy, prosperity, sustainability, and solidarity.
The announcement will take place at The Sanders Institute Gathering in Burlington, Vermont (November 29 – December 1), which will bring together an array of activists, thinkers and politicians to discuss pressing issues like climate change, workers rights, and healthcare.
DiEM25’s Yanis Varoufakis will participate in an international roundtable with Bernie Sanders (Vermont Senator), Niki Ashton (Member of Canadian Parliament), and David McWilliams (Irish author and economist) that will discuss the need for international cooperation in an age of rising authoritarianism.
Following the roundtable discussion, Sanders Institute Founder and Fellow Jane Sanders will join Yanis Varoufakis in issuing an ‘Open Call’ to progressives around the world, inviting individuals and organisations to join as signatories.
It is time for progressives of the world to unite. Join us. Join Progressive International.
