Wales pro-European Network

What is this website?

This site is one of a set of sites intended to cover the whole of the UK (index page) to help you find and work with the relevant pro-Europe groups in your area. So it is part of UKPEN.eu. Please send any comments or requests for editing permissions to waproeurnet at gmail.com

The Pro-European Wales Toolbox (PEWIT) has yet to be established but preliminary ideas for content are being assembled here:

What is it for?

The idea behind this work is that we need to see who we are, where we are and who our neighbours are. This is essential to plug the gaps in our network and to be ready for any new chance to vote. The constituency pages (there's an example of a relatively well filled out constituency page here, Aberconwy) are supposed to help everyone get to grips with

  1. the important task of corresponding with MPs to make our wishes and feelings known. You can get help doing this either through the national campaigns Represent Us, and Best for Britain, or by plugging in to their targeted operations in particular constituencies, and throughout constituencies in this part of the UK.
  2. developing maps right down to ward level to help activists cover their streets with leaflets and door to door conversations, and to keep a log of where they have been and where they have not been, whichever organisation or group they are working for. These resources can be held off this site, but the more linked up they are here, the more they can be shared across different groups working in the same area.

How do I use it?

To find your constituency use this tool: https://mapit.mysociety.org/ . An index to all constituencies in Wales is here. In this site individual constituency pages are grouped under their unitary authority, themselves grouped into three areas: North, Mid and South Wales. Join your constituency group and start work for Europe! Join your national or area group to take part in events and discussions. The main national or area groups in Wales are as follows, for more local groups follow the links to sub-pages.
