Content of program
The Directorate General for Communication of the European Parliament (EP) will award grants in the area of communication to advance public awareness of the European Parliament's role in our lives delivering democracy, increase civic participation and mobilise voters in the European Elections 2024 (EE24).
The EP’s citizen’s engagement grants in field of communication consist of one-time grants to build an informed and engaged European electorate, and increase democratic participation in the European Union (EU).
The purpose of this call is to select proposals for the award of grants for one or a series of actions aimed at engaging an as wide as possible segment of European citizens in an effort to bring forward the role and work of the EP and the importance of materialising parliamentary democracy by voting in the 2024 European Elections (EE24). The EP will roll out its institutional EE24 communication campaign in early 2024 to inform the public about the European Elections, and to increase voter turnout. Activities to be organised by grant beneficiaries are meant to complement and support this campaign. Consequently, grant beneficiaries are expected to adapt their activities’ timeline according to the different phases of the EP campaign.
Projects co-financed by the EP under this call should cover a wide range of non-partisan communication activities related to European democracy and community-based engagement.
