The ‘Leuven-Europa Kring’ (LEUK) was launched in 2019 as a circle of allies for the missions of LEUC, to impart information on the European project and bring the EU closer to citizens of Leuven, and to promote Leuven as a pilot region for European policies.

Everyone living in the greater Leuven area can sign up for LEUK membership. Members will then receive invitations for public events organized by LEUC and possible calls for collaboration.

In this way, LEUC aspires to deepen its ties with people and organizations in and around Leuven (including the City, the university, IMEC, Leuven 2030, Leuven MindGate, …).

LEUK’s first public event took place on 28 January with a lecture by Jos Delbeke, former Director General of the Climate Directorate General at the European Commission. He presented his book ‘Towards a climate-neutral Europe. Curbing the trend ‘. The lecture was organized in cooperation with “Leuven 2030”.

A second event took place on February 4 2021. Together with our partner organization Leuven 2030, we organized a webinar “One year European Green Deal”, featuring prominent speakers such as Elena Visnar Malinovska (DG CLIMA), John Cleuren (DG RTD), and Robert Nuij (DG ENER).

Our next event is planned for June 2021 and will focus on Social Europe.

In order to reach a broad audience, the language for communication at our events will alternate between English and Dutch.
