Events listed here are open to everyone. Screenings of The Great European Disaster Movie will, we hope, give you and your audience plenty of food for thought. But it is your ideas, reactions, feelings and proposals that matter most. Our aim is to stimulate that debate, as well as providing a means by which you can share your ideas and conclusions with the rest of the Wake Up Europe! community.

Join Wake Up Europe!

Wake Up Europe is a campaign brought to you by the Wake Up Foundation. It was sparked by the themes explored in The Great European Disaster Movie by Annalisa Piras and Bill Emmott.

We believe in the values that inspired the European project but that this project isn't working. Europe is sleep-walking towards disaster. We must wake up Europe so that we can save Europe from itself.

This job is too important to be left to the elites, the media, the political parties alone: ordinary people must be encouraged to discuss what Europe they want to see.
