On 17 March, European Parliament President Roberta Metsola handed over the keys to the Station Europe building to the Ukrainian civil society organisation ‘Promote Ukraine’.
To support Ukrainian civil society, the European Parliament will make a whole floor available to the NGO Promote Ukraine in the Station Europe building in Brussels, the old station situated on Place Luxembourg, in front of the European Parliament in Brussels.
“We want to do everything in our power to support Ukrainians, whose courage has astounded us. Offering this space to the Ukrainian struggle is a concrete act of solidarity,” said Metsola.
The space will be used to coordinate Ukrainian civil society action (organising demonstrations, press conferences, etc.) and to provide psychological and administrative support to refugees from Ukraine now arriving in Belgium (job seeking, registering at municipal offices).
The building will be made available to the civil society centre until 30 June, with the possibility of extension.
