About the Event

We are delighted to invite EU/UK CSOs, organizations and citizens interested in networking and making  collaborative connections to our Common Ground networking event in Brussels! 

The Common Ground project has revealed UK citizens' desire for closer ties with the EU, offering valuable insights for policymakers and highlighting strategic areas for cooperation, such as social justice and diversity, science and  research, mobility, sustainability and climate change. Additionally, it has emphasized the importance of fostering  connections between UK and EU citizens, celebrating individual experiences, and promoting positive  contributions to society, aiming to strengthen relations between both communities.  

Let’s work towards a Common Ground by connecting with EU groups and organizations and exchanging with  professionals and practitioners from the UK and EU!  

The event offers a great chance to connect, share ideas, and build relationships in a relaxed atmosphere. Thematic discussions will generate collaborative recommendations, followed by a networking reception. 

You can find the agenda for the event below. The tickets available upon request. If  you would like to attend and represent an EU community in the UK and feel you could benefit from and contribute to the event please register your interest. As spaces are limited, we recommend registering your interest at your earliest convenience.

Places and travels will be confirmed on a first come, first served basis. Those eligible for  reimbursement will have to keep a copy of the purchased ticket(s) and boarding passes.
