People’s Gatherings are taking place across Europe: Join the conversation!

Join a Gathering to discuss the pressing contemporary issues in your country!

DiEM25’s citizen engagement project, People’s Gatherings, launched a few months ago and people are coming together in their local area to talk about topics that matter. This citizen engagement project is a first step in forging political programmes across Europe.

Gatherings have been organised in Serbia, Portugal and Belgium to discuss issues ranging from the climate crisis to housing and the cultural sector. If you are based in these countries, you can register for the event below.

Want to host a Gathering yourself but not sure how? You can also register here to join our biweekly open call tonight at 18:00 CET! Can’t make it to this one? Check the calendar and sign up to the the next open call. DiEM25 Gatherings can only be organised by DiEM25 members. If you’re not a member of our movement, you can still participate in the national events of the country you are based in.
