IFAIR´s EU Elections Testimonial Campaign #proEU2014 a great success
From May 12 to May 25th, IFAIR successfully launched a Testimonial Campaign that presented young people´s motivation for taking part in the elections for the European Parliament 2014. In total, 41 people participated through taking a picture of themselves or with friends, holding a poster in their hands that completed the phrase “I vote because…“, with, for instance, “I am European”, “I want to eat crops and not Monsanto crap” or “European decisions need European legitimation”. We shared these testimonials on our Facebook and Twitter account and are very proud for having reached over 13 000 people with our campaign.
Along with other campaigns that aimed at increasing voter participation in the EU elections, #proEU2014 could thus make a contribution to increase the participation in Germany from 43.3 to 48 % and to stop the European overall trend of a decreasing participation that dominated the elections over the past years.
IFAIR would like to thank all people who sent us a testimonial as well as our followers and partners for sharing and liking the pictures.
