THE MOVEMENT

The SLAVONIC EUROPE Movement (SE) is a Civil Society Initiative with culture – in the broad sense of the Unity of Arts, Science and Innovation – as its starting point, content and way of fulfillment at the same time building the intersection of its multiple strands of action. This unique bottom-up approach is an innovative alternative approach – a new and original Slavonic initiative – to societal organisation and cohesion reaching out simultaneously to other countries and regions in Europe and around the world seeking mutual exchange and understanding.

The Movement pursues three specific objectives:

  • To reinforce and deepen the LINKS BETWEEN THE SLAVS in Europe and all over the world: Vertical dimensionIdentity Building
  • To contribute to the construction of a BRIDGE BETWEEN EAST & WEST in our challenging times: Horizontal dimensionConfidence Building
  • To bring the RICHNESS, DEEPNESS AND DIVERSITY OF THE SLAVONIC Civilisation to people around the globe: Transversal dimensionHUMANITY

Raising awareness of the particularly rich, deep, vast and diversified Slavonic Civilisation and hence of the very identity of the Slavonic people and their proper position in today’s world represents a fascinating and challenging endeavour and constitutes an autonomous value in itself.

Moreover, in times of rising disintegration and apparent political and social drifting in Europe this unique civilisational project strives for making the difference – a proactive and constructive contribution to enhance the communication and cooperation between people and build up a new bridge between East and West strengthening thus the cohesion within the European continent.

In order to be up to this ambitious task, the SLAVONIC EUROPE Movement (SE) disposes of the following sound organizational structure, based on two distinct legal bodies under Belgian law – the SLAVONIC EUROPE Foundation (Fondation privée – non-profit) and the SLAVONIC EUROPE s.p.r.l. (Ltd. – for-profit) allowing for deploying the necessary power of impact in realisation of its main goals and the fulfillment of their specific objectives and individual projects.
