Life after EU Membership - What next for Civil Society in the UK?
On 1 January 2021 the transition period which had been in place since the UK withdrew from the EU on 31 January 2020 ended. The process culminated in the negotiation of the Trade and Cooperation Agreement which together with the Withdrawal Agreement provides a starting point for a new relationship between the UK and EU.
As the dust settles we are beginning to see information which will help us start to understand what our future relationships with Europe could look like, what impact leaving the European Union could have on Civil Society, the way we work and everyday life and what structures could be put in place to replace those we have previously engaged with.
On the 23 April (10am - 12.30pm) WCVA, SCVO, NICVA and NCVO will co-host a session to provide an update on what has happened since our formal departure from the European Union within each nation. The session will also provide an opportunity for organisations to discuss what specific areas are important to them following our withdrawal and how the sector can position itself to influence and engage with relevant structures and institutions positively in the future.
Agenda to follow soon.
The session will be held on Zoom, a joining link will be sent to you the day before the event.
This session will be facilitated online. We'll provide instructions and support for participants to get setup.
