Informing citizens of the role and relevance of the European Parliament in a changing Europe

The project was co-financed by the European Union in the frame of the European Parliament’s grant programme in the field of communication. The European Parliament was not involved in its preparation and is, in no case, responsible for or bound by the information for opinions expressed in the context of this project. In accordance with applicable law, the authors, interviewed people, publishers or programme broadcasters are solely responsible. The European Parliament can also not be held liable for direct or indirect damage that may result from the implementation of the project.

Principle Objective

Communicate the European Parliament’s involvement in topical areas and issues that affect European citizens in a changing Europe.

Specific Objective

  • Connect the EP and European citizens through a European media network that both aggregates and localizes content, fostering informed dialogue with stakeholders.
  • Explain how the work of the EP and its defence of democratic values relate to people’s lives.
  • Deconstruct fake news or myths about the EP and the EU by reporting relevant facts and opinions.

Topics and timing

We focus on two main topic areas, linking with relevant priority topics of the EP agenda from September 2017 through June 2018:

  • Jobs, growth and investment;
  • Security, migration and fundamental rights (human rights, equality, etc).

Countries

We leverage our pan-European media network to cover the topics most relevant in key countries.  We target countries where investment is crucial (Greece), national elections have engaged citizens in European issues (France, Germany, Italy) and where border security has become front-page news (Poland, Romania).

Thanks to our media partners, we also publish content in Spain (with EFE Agency) and Poland (with Gazeta Wyborcza).

Content is published in English on euractiv.com on the Politics Hub, which acts as a central content repository. Content is exchanged for localised translation among the partners.
