The Europa-Union Heilbronn - located in the district of Heilbronn / Franken in the state of Baden-Württemberg - is part of the Union of European Federalists, a non-governmental and supranational organisation, which is dedicated to the promotion of a democratic and federal Europe. It aims to bring together citizens who desire to work for the federal unity of Europe, act as a catalyst of democratic forces in Europe, and stimulate public debate on the political content of the "European project" in favour of building a safer and more just world.

European Federalists believe that only a common effort of European citizens working towards more democratic institutions on the European level could create a long lasting peace and freedom, and a strong common answer to global challenges.

The European Federalists are present in more than 37 countries and represent over 50.000 members.
