We maintain that the UK, having left the EU, will have its best interests served by retaining a close as possible relationship with the EU, its peoples and its cultures. This site will serve as a bulletin board, a village pump, and information and interest exchange. The aim of this site it to keep alive our already close ties with the countries of Europe which, we maintain, were more easily facilitated when the UK was a member of the EU. We will also share any difficulties that arise from terminating membership and solutions to problems where they exist. Also, we will share advantages of leaving the union should they arise...

Connecting With Our Neighbours: European initiatives in York

PANEL DISCUSSION: Tuesday 13 June 2023, 6pm to 7pm, Ron Cooke Hub, Campus East, University of York

festival banner

York has been twinned with the city of Dijon, France, since 1952 and with Münster, Germany, since 1957. Both partnerships are thriving and offer new perspectives and opportunities to those brave enough to explore, whether in real life or online.

Join us to hear from York residents who are connecting with like-minded people in Münster over a shared interest, be it cycling or singing, books or football. Hear about the York cyclists’ visit to Münster in 2022 and their thought-provoking tour of the city’s cycle infrastructure, and the Münster cyclists’ ride to York in June 2023. Find out what activities are offered by the Dijon group and York for Europe. Hear from Huntington School’s students and staff about their recent exchange visits to both cities.

The session will introduce information on York’s twinning with Dijon and Münster and involve residents as well as representatives of three civic organisations: York Münster Twinning and York Dijon Twinning Associations and York for Europe.

Come along to find out more about York’s partnerships and discover how you, too, can get involved and benefit from these connections.

Ursula Lanvers, Jenny Gwynne, Don Lodge, Emilie Knight, Chris Kyriacou and staff and students from Huntington School, York
