In August 2019 the UK’s body for railway companies announced that the UK would no longer participate in Interrail following Brexit, I founded a petition with NewEuropeans, the FreeInterrail campaign and its Founders Vincent-Immanuel Herr & Martin Speer, and Madelina Kay.

Alongside other campaigners, after nearly 2000 signatures and a letter writing campaign, we succeeded in reversing the UK’s planned exit from Interrail, ensuring future generations will continue to enjoy this iconic rite of passage for young Europeans, and maintaining social ties between our citizens after Brexit.
