New European initiative to prosose a green card for all Europeans living in UK is appreciated by me and for this I really believe that this award is really deserved.

Delighted to have joined Roger Casale in the wonderful New Europeans’ initiative.

The EU Green Card project is a great idea, to mitigate Brexit and to promote European citizenship.

The Schwarzkop Award is a fantastic boost to these efforts.

Grazie. Ci serve una Nuova Europa, per non condannarci all’irrilevanza nel mondo.

Altro che sovranismo, ci serve condivisione. Servono risorse proprie dell’Unione e metodo comunitario.

Giovani Brauzzi,  New Europeans Rome

#FBPE @NewEuropeans congratulations to Roger Casale and the #NewEuropeans for a well deserved prize.

Mark DePew, New Europeans Lower Rhine, Bonn


That is great news! You have made an enormous effort to raise the voice of not only the Britons but also the rest of the Europeans that will be negatively affected by Brexit.

Well done - and keep up the good work!!

Cecilia Borglin, Swedes Worldwide, Stockholm


The New Europeans are doing a fantastic job, but it shouldn't be left to to organisations like this to defend our rights. 

Unfortunately, the British government has done almost nothing to defend the rights of British citizens living in Europe.

We've seen our rights pulled from under our feet but I get the impression that the people who should be looking out for us really couldn't care less.

I always considered Britain one of the great democracies of the world, but I'm afraid after this mess I've changed my mind.

Thank you New Europeans.

Wendy Reed, France


Congratulations on this great achievement. It is just recognition of the important work being done by New Europeans, especially in these worrying times.

Professor Louise Ryan, Unviersity of Sheffield


Congratulations to New Europeans on receiving the Schwarzkopf Europe Award. 

Your work on highlighting the impact of UK Brexit proposals on European citizens is excellent and still very much needed. I am sure that this award will spur New Europeans to even greater impact over the coming months.

Sue Ferns, Deputy General Secretary, Prospect Union. Londo
