EPALE focus week: EUelections 2019.

Europe is going through turbulent times. Although many continue to support the idea of Europe, cohesion and cooperation are needed to steer the project back into more stable waters. The election turnout in recent years seems to show that political participation at the European level is declining. This means that in the forthcoming European Parliament elections European citizens’ active participation will be more important than ever.

The main reason for this participatory decline could be a loss of confidence in European institutions and politics, or a lack of understanding how European politics affects everyone’s lives. All those who believe in Europe are called upon to stand up for European policy issues and help strengthen public trust in European politics.

This is why we organise the EPALE focus week for the 2019 European Elections

EPALE Germany, EPALE Austria, EPALE East Belgium and EPALE Luxembourg have compiled content the subject of promoting active citizenship and participiation in the context of the European Elections. During the week from 20 to 24 May, a new topic will be unlocked every day.

Join us for the European Elections 2019 focus week. Read, like, comment and discuss with us!

Nach den letzten politischen Geschehnissen, z.B. in Österreich, wird die Europawahl immer wichtiger aber auch immer verwirrender. In Großbritannien wird Beratung zum taktischen Voting angeboten, um einen Erdrutsch-Sieg der Brexit Partei zu vermeiden. Vieles kommt bei den Menschen ungefiltert an und die Unsicherheit ist groß, wie man sich überhaupt noch sinnvoll im politischen Geschehen einbringen kann angesichts dessen, was so ans Licht dringt. Macht es überhaupt Sinn zur Wahl zu gehen? Die Skepsis ist groß und der Glaube in die Politiker und die politischen Parteien, speziell was Europa angeht, stark geschrumpft.
Daher ist diese Woche, die Informationen für Lehrpersonal und Interessierte anbietet, wie Menschen sich einbringen können, warum es wichtig ist zu wählen und wie man die Menschen für politische Themen auf europäischer Ebene begeistern kann, ein wesentlicher Beitrag zur Demokratiebildung, nicht nur in Deutschland und dem deutschsprachigen Raum, sondern für ganz Europa.

See on väga tänuväärt algatus saksakeelsete EPALE riikide kolleegide poolt. Kui loed saksa või inglise keeles, siis saab tutvuda ka postituste originaalsisuga. Eestikeelsed tõlked valmivad jõudumööda. Oma mõtteid saad jagada kommenteerides eesti keeles ning võõrkeelsete kommentaaride lugemiseks kasuta EPALEsse siseehehitatud GoogleTranslate funktsiooni ülemises menüüs.
