Event in Moravia: “The role of European regions in building a new Union for All Peoples”
Coinciding with Moravian Day, EFA and its member party the Moravian Movement will organise a conference in Brno on the need to strengthen the role of European Regions in the EU policy-making process
At a time when the European Union is facing great challenges and uncertainty, many see this as an opportunity for a re-think of the Union. Looking to the future, the EU must adapt to solve the challenges of the 21st century. Only by adapting, can the EU become become stronger, more transparent, more participative, and more inclusive of all its different Peoples. The European Free Alliance has always pushed to strengthen the role of regions in the EU, a move which would bring the European institutions closer to citizens and foster an approach which takes all peoples into account when making decisions.
With this goal in mind, coinciding with Moravian Day, EFA and its member party, Moravian Movement (MHZ), will organise a conference on the 16th of September in Brno. Titled “The role of European regions in building a new Union for All Peoples”, the event will focus on the need to strengthen the role of European Regions in EU policy-making process. Participating in the event will be EFA President, Lorena López de Lacalle, and MHZ President, Ondřej Hýsek. There will be interpretation in Czech and English. Other EFA member parties will also be represented in the panel discussions, including Lista za Rijeku (Croatia), Bayernpartei (Bavaria), and the Yorkshire Party (Yorkshire, United Kingdom).
The EFA delegation will also participate in the Moravian Day celebrations. On the 17th of September, EFA will join the Moravian people in a cultural community event starting at St. Thomas Church ( at the Moravian Square), followed by a march through the centre of Brno that will finish at Freedom square. After lunchtime, EFA President, Lorena López de Lacalle, and MHZ President, Ondřej Hýsek, will speak at the open political event. Moravian Day will conclude with a community event at City Beach Brno featuring political speeches.
This visit to Moravia will allow EFA and its parties from Central Europe to appreciate the role of European regions and emphasise the importance of their contribution to the EU. The different languages, identities, and cultures that they represent enrich the European cultural map and contribute to widening EU’s plurality. EFA fights for a Europe that has room for everyone: a Europe of All Peoples.
