  • Bilbao
  • 2nd European Forum Of Progressive, Ecological And Leftist Forces
  • Bilbao European Forum

  • The Bilbao European Forum is open to all forces who wish to debate, build and act together to ward-off current threats and build another future for Europe. Our unity and our cooperation are indispensable.

    By continuing to enrich the great interests of finance, neoliberal political leaders who implement the policies of social deregulation and austerity, are plunging Europe further and further into chaos. For the people, the competition and the destruction of social models always result in lower wages, unemployment, precariousness, lower social spending, liberalisation of public services and privatisation. Inequalities are exploding all over Europe. The ecological future of the planet, women's rights and the future of youth are been sacrificed.

    Facing these threats and challenges, urgently strengthening the common work of the left-wing, progressive and ecological forces will give the people a voice.

    This is why we are pleased to invite you to the European Forum of Progressive, Ecological and Leftist forces in Bilbao, following the first edition held in Marseille in 2017.


    Please find attached the program in detail.
