  • ALDE Party Congres | VVD-leden

    Van 2 t/m 4 juni zal het ALDE congres van 2022 plaatsvinden in Dublin. Meer informatie rondom het ALDE congres kan eenvoudig via deze link gevonden worden. De officiële delegatie van de VVD is al samengesteld, maar wij moedigen VVD-leden van harte aan om op eigen initiatief naar het ALDE congres te komen. Op het ALDE congres zal een goed moment gevonden worden om Hans van Baalen (1960-2021), voormalig ALDE-voorzitter en voormalig Fractieleider van de VVD in het Europees Parlement, te herdenken en te eren. Daarnaast zullen we ook een moment organiseren om met de VVD-leden samen te komen in Dublin en is het altijd goed als zoveel mogelijk VVD-leden het gesprek aangaan met andere Europese liberalen. VVD-lid en op eigen initiatief aanwezig bij het ALDE congres? Stuur dan een mail naar c.luijkx@vvd.nl om uw aanwezigheid door te geven. Lees verder

  • VVD International stands with Ukraine

    No words can properly describe our disbelief about the current situation in Ukraine. VVD International strongly condemns this violation of the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine. At this time, we would like to express our support, on behalf of our team, to Ukraine and the Ukrainian people. We also would like to stress that we stand firm with our liberal partners in Ukraine and in the rest of Eastern Europe. The situation once again underlines the importance of our work and gives us even more motivation to strengthen the foundations of a free and liberal world, which is perhaps more important than ever.

  • Lebanese LIDTA participants to the rescue!

    Recently, VVD International laid contact again with Tiffany Geara and Georges El Ghafary. Both are participants of the Liberal International Democratic Training Academy (LIDTA), which is a high-level training course on a yearly base for talented young politicians from the Middle East and Northern Africa (or MENA-region) organised by VVD International in cooperation with Liberal International. We contacted Georges and Tiffany to discuss the current vibrant situation in Lebanon. The situation in Lebanon is still critical and it is hard to oversee the problematic (socio)economical and political developments. Before the Coronacrisis, the country faced economic decline, and which was worsened by the Coronacrisis. Eventually, the explosion on the 4th of August in Beirut, left Lebanon literally and figuratively in ruins. Many people still do not have access to basic amenities in Beirut. There is for example not enough food and thousands of houses have become unliveable due to the explosion. As a response to this crisis, Tiffany and Georges established Lebanon 2.0. This NGO is a young and dynamic organisation that is working hard, in various ways, to initiate the rebirth of Lebanon. Lees verder
