THE EUROPEAN COUNCIL OF SKEPTICAL ORGANISATIONS
There are quite a number of European countries with national skeptical organisations, some of which, as in Germany, Sweden, Italy, Belgian and the Netherlands, are very substantial. Like ASKE, many of these organisations are affiliated to the European Council of Skeptical Organisations (ECSO). ECSO has a very active website, a prominent feature of which is the regular appearance of news items of interest from skeptical groups throughout Europe. There are also articles on skeptical topics and a link to a comprehensive calendar of meetings of interest across Europe.
The European Skeptics Congress
Every two years one of the societies affiliated to ECSO hosts a public conference. The 18th European Skeptics Congress was organised by the Belgian and Dutch Skeptics in Ghent, Belgium, from August 29th to September 1st 2019. Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, the next congress has been delayed a year and is scheduled for April 2022 in Vienna. Keep an eye on the ECSO website for details.
