Brussels Wednesday Socials

In cooperation with the European Movement International (EMI) and EuroCommerce, the European association for retail and wholesale, METRO GROUP regularly hosts the Brussels Wednesday Socials. Twice a year, the Brussels Wednesday Social gives a guest speaker the opportunity to elaborate on relevant political and societal developments in the European Union followed by a debate with guests from the business community as well as from politics and civil society. Already prior to the event itself, the issue in question can be discussed online.

Our Brussels Wednesday Socials are based on the tried and trusted Berlin format and one of our main hopes is to connect people from different areas to listen to their different perspectives and to learn from each other.

One of our main hopes is to bring together people from different areas to hear their different perspectives and learn from each other.

We cordially invite you to join our discussion: on site in Brussels in the beautiful Solvay Library, on the website of the Brussels Wednesday Social at the Digital Office Brussels or on Twitter with the hash tag #WSBRU.

Videos of all Wednesday Socials to date can be viewed on our Youtube channel.
