Networking for democracy defenders

An initiative of

Every month, freedom-loving citizens meet up at informal networking events known as #DemocracyDrinks. The events attract a lively mixture of people from NGOs, international institutions, think tanks, national governments and representations, academia, public affairs consultancies, social businesses and active citizens.

#DemocracyDrinks are a great way of making new contacts and catching up with people you know; for testing ideas and planning actions; for moral support and inspiration. Feel free to invite friends and colleagues that work on or are interested in defending values like democracy, rule of law, human rights… Come along and you will be made welcome.

#DemocracyDrinks are currently organised in Brussels (Belgium), Berlin (Germany), Budapest (Hungary), Copenhagen / Aarhus (Denmark), Helsinki (Finland), Kathmandu (Nepal), London (UK), Montreal (Canada), The Hague (Netherlands), Washington DC (United States) and Zürich (Switzerland) and soon also in other new cities — stay tuned for news!

We are working on launching them in other countries too, so ultimately you will be able to join us wherever you are.

Looking forward to meeting you at our Democracy Drinks!
