New Direction Academy


New Direction’s Academy in Dubrovnik between 7-10th November. 

The Academy brings together from across Europe, Conservative politicians and activists with thought-leaders from business, government, academia and the non-for-profit sector. The Academy aims to inspire Conservatives to engage with the key issues facing Europe today. 

New Direction has put together an exiting programme, which includes keynote speeches and topic-driven panel discussions.

New Direction is building on its commitment to further the values embedded in the ECR Group's Prague Declaration & the ECR Party's Reykavik Declaration.

The Academy's Alumni are already making their mark, writing regularly for the Foundation, helping shape policy, and advocating our shared values. 

This year’s theme is of critical importance as it has an impact on every individual, society and country. 'Building a Shared Future' is our collective responsibility, it is the sum of our creativity and knowledge, our talent and experience, our ingenuity and promise. Building a shared future is essential for boosting productivity, pivotal for economic growth and vital to the resilience of our economies and societies.

Early Bird Participation Fee €250 until 10th October, after that the participation fee increases to €375. So book early. 

Participation Fee covers economy flights, accommodation, conference lunch and a ticket to the Margaret Thatcher Dinner on Saturday evening.

The Academy is open to all ECR Party Members and their teams.
