ELF Hub at Freedom Games 2020

ELF HUB is a special part of Freedom Games 2020 forum designated exclusively to a series of events under the banner of European Liberal Forum, in cooperation and with participation of several member organizations of the network.

Freedom Games offer a unique opportunity to utilize the potential of an already recognized event in Poland to promote both liberal agenda and the activities of European Liberal Forum and its members. Presenting the online audiences with a package of events narrowly focused on several key topics aimed at promoting active citizenship has the potential of becoming one of the most central points of the forum.
