About We Belong

Who belongs to Europe? The question is ancient, but the answer keeps changing. We Belong is a platform and a podcast that gives a voice to the New Daughters of Europe. Through our platform, we share personal experience, sparkle conversations and legitimise immigrant daughters' voices. Our podcast features a series of conversations with young women who are breaking stereotypes, navigating multiple identities, and challenging the conventional wisdom of what it means to belong. 


About New Europeans

New Europeans is an award-winning pan-European civil rights movement working for a Europe of citizens, a Europe of equality and social justice, anchored in human rights. Based in Brussels and London, New Europeans has led campaigns for the rights of the 5 million EU citizens in the UK and Britons in Europe, including the Green Card for Europe campaign, and is currently working with a network of NGOs across Europe to put civil rights and citizen participation at the heart of the proposed conference on the future of Europe. 


This evening's event is part of a series of events linked together through the #EuropeFutureFringe network

About Europe Future Fringe

#EuropeFutureFringe is a free-standing series of events taking place across Europe in parallel with the Future of Europe Conference.Taking its inspiration from the Edinburgh Fringe, the Europe Future Fringe will be a series of freely organised events​ celebrating our European identity, allowing civil society to occupy the "spaces in-between" the formal conference consultations organised by the EU institutions. The Fringe will reach out to third country nationals as well as people resident outside the EU, including in the UK, Ukraine and the Balkans. It will give all who take part the opportunity to engage in a new conversation about Europe’s future.​​
