This European citizens’ gathering will be an opportunity for those engaged or interested in campaigning efforts directed towards upholding and defending the rights of all European citizens in the context of Brexit to engage, converse, cooperate and plan future initiatives. A key aim is to encourage a creative dialogue on the issues associated with European citizenship and the potential loss of rights and protections associated with it.
