Project

EU Awareness is a co-financed project under the EUROPE FOR CITIZENS Programme, within the Strand 2: Democratic engagement and civic participation. The Project consortium consists in 6 partners from Spain, Denmark, Portugal, Poland and Italy.

The project aims to identify through a survey the views and knowledge of the projects Target Group. The survey will also identify the more common euro myths or of each region involved, debunk them, open debate for all those ideas without any prejudice and finally show the EU mechanism available to get involved in Europe’s policymaking.

The project pursues four objectives:

  • To understand from the target group the most common misconceptions that are currently underlying Euroscepticism;
  • To develop innovative activities that provide factual information regarding the identified misconceptions,
  • To create and activate local debates around these issues and the future of Europe, which will assure long-term viability to this initiative;
  • Show to EU citizens the tools available to shape the future of the EU they want.

As to comply with these objectives, the partnership is planning to develop a transnational survey to identify and compare misconceptions, a tailor-made international communication campaign, 30 debates and 30 webinars.
