New LI website set to launch next week

With a positive endorsement from the Liberal International membership during a special presentation at LI’s 70th-anniversary Congress in Andorra, the finishing touches are being put in place to the new LI website ahead of the official launch next week.

The new website will balance the need for the LI membership to access the world federation’s historic documents with the ability to navigate LI’s contemporary work in a straightforward way. The LI membership will also be able to register for upcoming LI events, watch contemporary video footage, read about the latest events around the world from a liberal perspective and, later, donate directly to Liberal International.

In the initial days following the launch the website will be closely monitored and the Secretariat appreciates the patience of users as small and final adjustments are ironed out.

With the launch of the new website, the LI News is suspended over the summer period as a fresh-look LI News is developed. LI’s social media platforms, Twitter and Facebook, will be regularly updated with the latest news from the global liberal family – to stay up to date please ‘LIKE’ the LI Facebook page and ‘FOLLOW’ LI on Twitter.
