Event Introduction:

On May 27th, in Dublin, we will start writing the future Democratic European Constitution. How do we want Europe to be? What do we want Europe to become?

DiEM25 Dublin invites you to take part in this conversation.

It does not matter where you come from, which political party or social movement you follow, whether you represent yourself or other people. If you believe that Europe should become a zone of uncontested democracy and solidarity and you want to take a part in the shaping of our common future, please join us at the World Café event on the 27th of May followed by an evening event with speakers and audience engagement.

The launch of DiEM25 Ireland will be people centred. What we, the people of Europe, desire to achieve and how we want to achieve it, will be the subject of our main “World Cafe” workshops.

Your contribution, your opinion and your work are necessary. Europe is not the European Union or the European institutions as we know them today. Europe is the peoples of Europe, and it is our time to speak up.

DiEM25 Dublin would like to provide the framework for all Irish democratic movements to unite beyond their differences. If we manage overcome our differences in the construction of democracy, we will set the example for the same conversation to take place in other cities, in other countries.

By 2025 Europe will be ready to have a constitution produced by the people for the people. DiEM25 will provide the means for national and transnational movements to unite at a pan European scale in the search of true democracy.
