Brighton is a cracking city to live and work, to vist or to study in.
No surprises here - Brighton was, is and is likely to remain Britain's most popular seaside town. It's population of 250,00 includes students at Sussex University, as well as a highly diverse cosmpolitan community which includes the UK's first and so far only Green MP, Caroline Lucas.
New Europeans is very proud to have a branch in Brighton, coordinated by Lou Drammeh, with the help of Bella Kosmala, and our Brighton Action Team.
Depending on the interest of local members, the aim of the Brighton branch is to meet regularly and take initiatives in the community on behalf of New Europeans.
Through Luisa Macalli, our regional coordinator for the South East, we consult regularly with the branch about New Europeans' campaigning priorities and future developments.
Once a year, the Brighton branch meets to elect the branch chair and the branch action team. Appointment of the branch chair is then ratified at the New Europeans AGM.
New Europeans has been reaching out to EU citizens in Brighton though our Connecting Citizens and Talking Europe programmes which have held meetings at Sussex Unviersity. In 2014, Roger Casale, our Founder and CEO debated with Stephen Booth of Open Europe at the Brighton Dome Theatre.
Famous for its Pier, it's Royal Pavilion and for the Lanes, Brighton caters for all ages and tastes and a very lively cultural and artistic life. With its large LGBT community it is know as the "unofficial gay capital of Britain" . There is a positive energy and exuberance here that comes from the celebration of diversity in everyday life.
Sussex University is one of the leading institutions in the UK for the study of European integration and international relations. The European idea is alive and well in Brighton, not just on the campus but in the everyday life of the city and the people who live here.
All members of New Europeans are welcome at Brighton branch meetings and meet-ups as well as friends and new contacts who would like to learn more about what we stand for and our campaigns.
The catchment area for the Brighton branch includes the Brighton and Worthing Urban areas, which extends as far as Littlehampton as well as Lewes and Eastbourne to the East.
