PES Congress, Prague, 7-8 December 2009


The PES Congress is a major gathering of European socialist, social-democrats and labour members. It meets twice every five years and brings together over 330 delegates from the PES member parties and numerous guests and PES activists. The responsibilities of the Congress include: deciding on the political orientation of the PES, electing the President and adopting changes to the statutes and to the membership status of parties.

In 2009 the Congress took place in Prague, Czech Republic on 7-8 December and it was be the starting point of a broad debate on the European Left for the 21st century.

Putting in practice its approach towards limiting climate change, the PES decided to offset its staff's CO2 emissions.

Following the success of the PES Councils in 2008 and 2007 and PES Congress in 2006, where PES activists were a lively presence that marked a new way of integrating grassroots into European politics, activists were invited to take part to this important socialist gathering.
