+++Please register below for the S2B Meeting on November 15 and 16 in Brussels+++

After more than one and a half years of the pandemic, we are hopeful to hold our first face to face S2B meeting in Brussels on November 15 and 16 at 11.11.11 (Vlasfabriekstraat 11, 1060 Brussels).

We the occasion to look at our priorities as individual organisations and as a network and the larger political context to discuss where we are heading strategically. We will cover issues such as ongoing campaigns (ECT, EU-Mercosur), new priorities like digital trade, recent developments like the Commission push for EU internal investment arbitration, the struggle around intellectual property rights and political developments like upcoming elections or the geopolitical context with Biden as president. Beyond the content, we want to use the opportunity to see each other again in real life, to have plenty of space for open discussions and social activities in the evening.

Of course, it is still hard to assess if the situation will really allow for a face-to-face meeting.
We will take a final decision on October 25. Please make sure to book accommodation you can cancel free of charge at least until October 25 and consider the same when booking trains or buses.
