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...

Our fight continues....
We are standing up for European rights, standards and values in the UK”

The next general meeting for York for Europe supporters will be on Tuesday 4th October at 19.30, and will be held by Zoom.

York for Europe organised a musical event in celebration of our links with our twin cities of Münster and Dijon. The event was part of the nationwide Festival of Europe. Historically, artistic and creative links between European countries have been important for cultural and economic development across the continent.

We asked our twin cities to invite local groups to record some music of their choice. We hoped the result would be an interesting mix of musical types and so it has turned out. And so it was - something for every musical taste. We played the recording for over ninety minutes; it was projected on the big screen.

OVER 40 UK UNIVERSITIES HAVE TWINNED WITH UNIVERSITIES IN UKRAINE (Guardian)

York University has twinned with Karazin Kharkiv National University, one of Ukraine’s most prestigious institutions, whose buildings are in ruins from shelling. Prof Saul Tendler, deputy vice-chancellor at York, says one of the Ukrainian university’s many worries is protecting its libraries and archive collections. “They tell us they are in damp basements now and that’s not great,” he says. “If they can get them out of the country, we will hold them in our repositories.
