DiEM25 Prague Assembly Process

DiEM25 Assembly, Prague, November 23-24

In little over three years, we as DiEM25 have accomplished a lot: we founded a pioneering transnational movement to address the various crises that are disintegrating our Union; we created the first-ever pan-European coalition to run for elections behind a common progressive political programme; we got nine DiEMers into the Greek Parliament, and we launched the Green New Deal for Europe, a set of bold and concrete policies to address the climate change emergency and transform our energy system to save the planet.

And on November 23-24 in Prague, we will hold our first Assembly to bring DiEMers together for one very important task: to critically assess where we are today and help define a blueprint for DiEM25 to move forward.
