As we announced in the July issue of the Newsletter, the 2019 Freedom Drive will take place on 1 – 3 October 2019, in Brussels. In addition to the Freedom Drive, ENIL will be celebrating its 30th birthday and we will have our General Assembly.

Although we still haven’t confirmed the programme of events, we would like to encourage you to start fundraising and planning your trip to Brussels. In the coming months, we will share additional details, such as fundraising tips, how to organize meetings with MEPs etc.

To start with, we would like to share with you an updated list of accessible hotels in Brussels at this link. You can see the distance from each of the hotels to the ENIL office, where the workshops will take place (and bearing in mind that all the EU institutions are just a short walk away) and the nearest accessible metro station for each hotel.

We will update the list once the venue for the ENIL conference and the General Assembly are confirmed. At the moment, we are waiting to hear if we can hold some of the events in the Commission building.

If you know of other accessible accommodation that should be added to the list, please contact us at We look forward to hearing from you.

We also take this opportunity to remind you to look out for regular updates about the Freedom Drive on our website and the Freedom Drive Facebook page.

NOTE: This post was edited on 16 October 2018 and the date was changed to 1 – 3 October 2019. This the final date for the 2019 Freedom Drive.
