The European Pirate Party

2012 European Pirates Statutes Conference in Manchester

Here you will find first information for the European Pirates Conference in Manchester on the 1st-2nd December 2012.

Please note that this Conference will be focused on discussing the European Pirates statutes.

Please check this page occasionally for updated information.

Purpose

The second PPEU conference aims at continuing the efforts to create a joint political party at European level. This is not the Founding Conference.

Registration

To register for the Conference, just fill and send the form that you can find at the registration web page.

Please note that due to space limitations, and to ensure representation from all pirate parties, preference will be given to official delegates.

Registration is open until 26th November 2012 (later registration cannot be guaranteed).

Questions regarding Conference organisation can be sent to: invitation@ppeu.net

Sponsoring

Since we find very important that all parties are represented regardless of their available funds, we have organised the possibility that individual pirates sponsor delegates that don't have the means to pay for the trip.

Please, just indicate in the registration form that you request sponsoring or that you are willing to sponsor another pirate, as well as the particular amount, and we will mutually provide the sponsor and the sponsored pirate their contact email so they can agree and make any necessary arrangements.

The Agenda will be published soon.
