(Un)heard Voices Campaign

Welcome to “(Un)heard Voices,” a video campaign that aims to amplify the often unseen and unheard narratives of marginalized communities in the context of the upcoming European elections

Embarking on a mission to bring the information closer to you, the EU24 project launched an engaging communication campaign ( follow us on Instagram and Twitter ). Designed for those eager to delve into election-related topics, it offers insights on why the EU election matters, ways to celebrate democracy, the pivotal role of the European Parliament, distinctions between European and national elections, and the profound implications of these elections. Your voice matters!

As we prepare to cast our votes and shape our future, it’s crucial that we hear from voices that are typically sidelined or ignored.

Through a series of compelling video interviews “(Un)heard Voices” brings to light the diverse perspectives and lived experiences of individuals who have  been underrepresented in political discourse. From migrants, women, youth and elderly to members of the LGBTQ+ community advocating for equality and recognition, each story is a testament to the rich tapestry of identities and struggles that define our continent in times of climate crisis. 

But “(Un)heard Voices” goes beyond mere storytelling. It’s a call to action, urging viewers to confront their own biases, expand their understanding of social issues, and actively engage with marginalized communities in the democratic process. By amplifying these voices, we hope to foster empathy, solidarity, and meaningful change in the political landscape of Europe.

Join us on this transformative journey as we strive to make democracy truly inclusive and representative of all its citizens. Together, let’s ensure that no voice goes unheard, and that every individual’s perspective is valued and respected in shaping the future of our shared home.

“(Un)heard Voices: Perspectives on the European Elections from Marginalized Groups” – because every voice needs to be heard.

Campaign is a part of the  “EU24 Engage for the Planet” project that aims to decrease the democratic participation gap of young citizens, citizens of diverse backgrounds, mobile union citizens in a gender balanced way by showing them their voices matter.

As part of this campaign and as we prepare to cast our votes and shape our future, it’s crucial that we hear from voices that are typically sidelined or ignored.
