What Europe Means to Me

3 March 2016


March 2016
On 24 March we are launching our #MyEuropeMeans campaign in partnership with MyLifeMySay, the UK's influential youth engagement organisation. With this campaign we want to provide a counterweight to mere cost-benefit calculations in the debate on EU membership. Europe, and the UK's membership in the EU, is about more than just politics. It's about who we are, and who we want to be, as individuals and as peoples.

This campaign is about getting people, and in particular young people who may not otherwise get involved in the debate on Britain's EU membership, to think about what Europe is to them.

It is about our everyday lives, about ideas, food, art, culture, about human encounters.

Send us your picture or story, via email or twitter - whether you're in favour of leaving the EU, staying in, or don't know. What's the best thing about Europe for you? The worst? Do you have a favourite place? A song or book that changed how you feel about Europe? Is there one person, one taste, smell, sound, or object that sums up Europe for you?

Submissions will be reviewed to make sure they're not offensive or abusive - but we are not taking sides!


Come to our launch event for a fantastic opportunity to network with young leaders and representatives coming from across the UK over (free!) drinks.

We look forward to seeing you there!
