We have been working to create a DiEM25 capable of stepping-up its game.
We are living, more than ever, in a Europe in denial, with that powers that rule over our societies determined to crush the system that has brought them to power instead of allowing it to change, even by a centimetre, towards a direction that would benefit the many rather than the few. They need to be opposed and defeat, and there is no movement better placed for championing this struggle than DiEM25.
Although we have not been able to stop this yet, we have not been without successes. Our call for a New Deal for Europe, and now for a Green New Deal for Europe, has become mainstream: with all the risks of co-opting that that contains. We have united thousands of European around a common ambition for Europe: a continent at the service of its people, their dreams and their welfare. Last Spring we united political forces from across the continent under a single, common European programme for the first time in history!
Every day, through our work, we are proving that there is more that unites us across our borders than divides us within them.
We are proof of a Europe that is maturing beyond its nationalist adolescence. And we are just getting started.
We’ve spent the past year planning, and discussing where we go from here. We have debated various ideas about how our movement should operate, and we have had them voted on in an Assembly in Prague, and online by our pan-European membership. Together, we have spent the year 2019-2020 forging DiEM25 2.0, and now we are ready for the final touch: the Coordinating Collective’s Implementation Plan, following almost seven months of deliberations is ready to be voted on.
The six votes, relating to additions or changes to our Organising Principles, can be found below.
It is important that we all engage in this defining moment for our movement’s development:
The establishment of Task Forces on Feminism, Diversity, and Disabilities
The increasing of the tenure of Validating Council members
Future amendments to the Organising Principles through DiEM25 Member Assemblies or the PDP process
The improvement of the coordination of National Collectives and Electoral Wings with the Coordinating Collective
The introduction of a Membership Fee to make the movement financially sustainable
The establishment of a member-led process for organising All-Member Votes

Together with the political direction set-out by the DiEM25 2.0 vision, the above votes introduce the tools the Coordinating Collective feels are necessary for the movement to rise-up to the challenges we find before us.
Our message for a united, truly democratic Europe, with countries that put their people first, is more important and relevant than ever. With the finalisation of this review, we must all turn our focus to how we can make DiEM25 a strong force for progressive politics in a Europe that desperately needs it. We have almost finished the foundation, now we must start building. Together.
