The Spinelli Group and UEF are organising a series of events in European national capitals in order to meet citizens and national policy makers and make advance the debate on federal solutions to the challenges Europe is facing. The next national event of the Spinelli Group will take place in Vienna on 23 November, in cooperation with the Europäische Föderalistischen Bewegung in Österreich.
