At the Union of European Federalists' (UEF) European Congress in Vienna, the Union of European Federalists has launched its campaign for the European Parliament elections in May 2019 with the motto “I choose Europe”. 

This event is an intensive training and coordination event for activists of the Union of European Federalists (UEF) and the Young European Federalists (JEF Europe) engaged in the campaign for the European elections at national or local level.

It will offer participants the chance to:

  • understand the objectives, key messages, plan and timeline of the European campaign and its placement in the broader context of UEF and JEF activities;
  • get acquainted and practice the campaign tools (appeal to political parties, pledge for MEP candidates, pledge for citizens, campaign manifestos, visual material)
  • engage in skill-building workshops on essential campaign skills such as use of social media, advocacy approaches to candidates and political parties, and communication messaging.
  • practise the campaign narrative on the four key thematic areas of the campaign: a Strong Europe, a Democratic Europe, a Social Europe, a Federal Europe
  • align on how to coordinate local and national actions in the frame of the European campaign using synergies at best.

The event will combine presentations, interactive workshops, small group activities and individual feedback sessions.
