Wake Up Call for a New Europe!
The hopes of millions of British citizens for a UK future within the EU are now dead.
This is a sad day for Britain, and it is a sad day for Europe.
We must not allow this tumultuous event to shipwreck our aspirations, as EU citizens, for a new and better kind of Europe.
A modern, open, forward-looking Europe.
A Europe fit for the twenty-first century.
A Europe of the citizens.
A Europe that meets our needs.
The choice for us as citizens of Europe is clear.
Do we re-commit to the values of democracy, freedom, equality and solidarity that underpin the European project?
Or do we allow Europe to descend once again to the lowest common denominator which is nationalism?
Wake Up Europe believes that we can and must transform the anger and pain we feel as a result of Brexit into a passionate call to action for the rebirth of the European project.
We warned of the dangers facing Europe in our drama-documentary The Great European Disaster Movie.
One year on, Europe is still sleep-walking towards disaster.
Let us come together to think, to talk and to act.
Let us speak as one so that we reach the critical mass needed for our leaders to change track.
It is time to Wake Up Europe together in order to save Europe from itself
In the words of the late Jo Cox MP, "there is much more that unites than divides us."

We urgently need all to talk about Europe, understand and discuss what it is about, fight shallow thinking, ideologies and prejudices and find out how we can better live together on our continent. The Great European Disaster Movie is an excellent starting point. Come on: start the debate!

A campaign focusing on real European issues and real people and their understanding of these issues. The debate on Europe is about to get interesting!

At last a campaign that puts the onus on all of us to make the EU a better place to be rather than relying on some mysterious reform process from on high.
