As the London section of the European Movement in the United Kingdom, London4Europe’s history is intertwined with the Movement’s general aspirations to promote and increase understanding of European integration across the continent.
The origins of the European Movement UK can be found in the aftermath of the Second World War, when delegates from across Europe gathered in The Hague in May 1948.
Under the chairmanship of Sir Winston Churchill, a new international movement was established to promote European unity and prevent further wars between its members. The British section of the European Movement was founded a year later in 1949.
London4Europe is the London section of the European Movement UK, working alongside the national organisation to influence the discussion locally.
Along with similar groups and associations within the UK, we hope to make a positive and informative campaign an important priority as we approach an in-out referendum on European Union membership.
