The ‘Institut de Documentation Bretonne et Européenne’ (IDBE), an association that works at safeguarding the written and iconographical heritage of Brittany and European minorities, organises every year a day for meetings-conferences on Europe.

14.00: Meeting with various writers.

16.00: Beginning of Conference*

18.00: End of Conference.

*The theme of our conference is ‘Brittany and Wales in a post Brexit Europe’.

In addition to Jill Evans, Aziliz Gouez, a research associate at the Jacues Delors Institute, and Alain Glon, founder and ex president of one of the largest agri businesses of Brittany and President of the Locarn Institute, will be our speakers. Erwan Fouéré, president of the IDBE and ex EU diplomat, will be the moderator, and Yves Mervin, writer, the presenter.

There will be a debate after the speeches for all questions relating to the theme and the latest developments concerning BREXIT.
