Given that our ancestral homeland, Macedonia, is located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa, UMD has set as one of its top priorities to establish a presence in Europe. Throughout history, Macedonians have migrated to other European countries to seek better opportunities, to get educated, or to flee wars. Today, Europe (not including geographic Macedonia) is home to approximately 550,000-600,000.
UMD’s representatives in Europe serve in the following cities: Brussels, London, Paris, Saint Petersburg, Stuttgart, Thessaloniki (Solun), and Vienna.
UMD has plans to open its European headquarters in Brussels, the capital of the European Union and serve as the representative unitary body for all Macedonian communities throughout Europe.
