Welcome

We are Oxford for Europe – a group of volunteers working to help Oxford remain the welcoming and vibrant international centre that it has always been.

While our activity is mainly in Oxford, we support activities across Oxfordshire and the UK in co-operation with numerous other formal and informal pro-EU organisations. We are affiliated to the European Movement UK, and work closely with Grassroots for Europe, March for Change, Best for Britain and many others.

Brexit has happened, but that only increases the need to promote pro-EU voices, to make EU citizens welcome, to share news from the EU and to encourage more people to get involved in building a pro-European city, county and country. With the country facing unprecedented difficulties as a result of the pandemic, we need to ensure that we do not lose sight of the need for cooperation across borders, and the urgency of avoiding a no deal outcome on 1 January 2021.
