We’ve been busy!

Latest newsletter of Friends of JEF e.V. is now available.

It has been a while but we are hoping to make this more regular so you can keep posted on what is happening in our Federalist family.

Friends of JEF exists primarily to support the work of JEF Europe through financially supporting its activities and lending experience where possible. It is also a network to connect JEFers of all ages, because remember ‘once a JEFer, always a JEFer’. We hope in the next months to grow our network, and lend our strength to the Federalist cause as much as we can. It is because of this we encourage you to join Friends of JEF and donate if you can, but also to please tell your friends and fellow Federalists about this. We also really want to know you better as a subscriber to this newsletter, and so ask you to please complete our Contact Details Form. With this, we hope that we can better connect you to what is happening in JEF, ask you for help in better piecing together our history, and explore scope for ways we can work to support the Federalist cause, should you be someone with a little bit of free time or spare resources.

If you think you can lend some time to our work, or you might have knowledge that could be useful in any form, please get in touch with us on friends@jef.eu!

Always a generation ahead!

Simply a generation ahead!Since its beginnings in the late 1940s, tens of thousands of young Europeans have gone through the JEF experience. Friends of JEF is a platform that enables JEFers of different generations to keep in touch, reactivate lost contacts, and support the active generations.

An investment in a better future

JEF (Young European Federalists) is currently present with national sections in more than 40 countries all over Europe. Its eagerness to upgrade democracy , to strengthen the values of freedom and tolerance, and to reach out to all generations, all regions, and all social groups is stronger than ever. With its campaigns ranging from grassroot sections up to the decision-making hubs in Brussels, Strasbourg and worldwide, JEF is at once an effective local and global player.

Supporting JEF is and remains a good investment in a better future!

Website relaunch

Workshop RelaunchThanks to Jon we have relaunched the Friends of JEF website this weekend. Great new and simple design. Wordpress-based. Also, we now have a proper mailing system. As always, feedback is much welcome. Please let us know, if you miss any information or there are any bugs.

With the mailing system we may send a few more occasional emails but this should never spam your inboxes.

Where we would like to ask for your support is:
– sign up with your current email address.
– make sure that your JEF friends from the days have also signed up. You can now use this form here on this website to add your/their contact details.
– if you have any nice pictures or stories from your time, please send them over to the board and we are happy to add them to the photo gallery.
