Workshop: Reviving the European project
január 31 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Innovative communication to tackle Euroscepticism
Comprehending and Debating Euroscepticism (CODES) is a project combining research and public awareness building, co-funded by the Europe for Citizens Programme. Through local public debates in Slovakia, Hungary, Germany, Austria, Bulgaria, and Latvia, the project identified the sources of public Euroscepticism, and developed tools to better communicate EU policies at national and local levels.
This workshop will present and discuss innovative communication ideas that could impact in the run-up of the 2019 European Parliament elections.
