together.eu: Democracy is what makes us
What is together.eu ?
Together.eu is a project run by the European Parliament, dedicated to getting as many people as possible involved in the democratic life of Europe and, in particular, to getting out the vote for the European elections in 2024.
We are a community of people who believe in democracy and who want to give it real meaning as the next European elections approach. Why does this matter - and more importantly, why should it matter to you?
- democracy is what makes us. It brings peace, freedom and a good quality of life to European citizens. It starts wherever you are, whenever you decide to change something you care about, whether it is small or big, like signing a petition, joining an event or exercising your right to vote.
- but democracy is always a work in progress. It can be easy to forget that democracy is made by individuals. The more of us work together on this, the more of us vote, the stronger democracy becomes. There is always room for improvement. Building the European Union always was and still is an ongoing project. And so is democracy.
- together, we go further. European democracy is a core value we all share regardless of our political affiliation or views. Supporting it together is much easier than acting alone. And now, tens of thousands of people are joining us from across the EU, willing to speak up and take action to ensure we work to strengthen this core value that underpins our way of life in Europe.
Who is together.eu for?
together.eu is for anyone who wants to stand up for democracy in Europe by helping bring out the vote at the 2024 European elections. It is a community of individual citizens across the EU, but all kinds of civil society organisations or youth networks also sign up as partners and supporters for the same cause. together.eu empowers all supporters of European democracy, by making them stronger and more confident to raise their voice, share their values and act, thanks to the strength of a community. We welcome volunteers of any age and any background as well as groups or organisations. Wherever you are, whatever you do, whatever your cause or beliefs, all we ask is that you share our commitment to democracy.
What do we do – and what can you do?
You will meet and connect with like-minded Europeans – and learn about their ideas and projects. We will share knowledge and help you grow your skills – to use your voice, express your ideas for the future and engage with European decision-makers. We will help you discover people, groups and organisations that care about the same issues as you. You will have a unique connection with the European Parliament - and be able to get in touch with its teams all over Europe. Last, but not least we will celebrate your and our collective successes. Together.
How we do that?
The together.eu website is the central hub for all our and your activities to promote democracy and the 2024 European elections. Regular messages via email offer actionable ideas on events you can organise, action you can take and ideas you would share. We provide everyone with the right tools to join events and organise their own – and then to share your success stories with the community. For those who want to take things further, our teams across Europe, the European Parliament’s Liaison Offices, will contact you, offer training and support so that you can gain maximum multiplying effect. On the website, you will have direct access to the European Parliament’s campaign and communication materials to download and use in your own activities. And at the same time, you can share your contributions and material for others to learn from.
