The Revolution of Hope

Join the biggest campaign ahead of the EU elections 2024

“A Europe, where the public debate ahead of elections only takes place on the national level is not a proper Union.
A constructive, multilingual and participatory exchange between citizens across borders is needed to build a more united and democratic Europe!”

Antonio Argenziano, President, JEF Europe

“EurHope will engage citizens on a massive scale, to put their priorities in the centre of the public debate ahead of the European elections.”

Alicia Combaz, CEO & Co-Founder, Make.org

Why EurHope?

The war on the continent, rising inflation, an increasingly obvious climate crisis and the pandemic are some of the challenges that Europe is facing and that  amplify division, fear and interference against European unity and solidarity.

According to Eurobarometer, most of Europeans feel uncertainty, frustration, helplessness, anger, and fear. Yet, there is a sentiment emerging among these predominant feelings, HOPE.

The 2024 European elections will be a crucial moment for the EU, and Europeans will have an important role to build an alternative, positive front and to make Europe stronger – together!

This challenge starts by building a dialogue between young citizens, across borders and language barriers to put their priorities for the future of Europe at the heart of the 2024 campaign, replacing the agenda of fear and division with their “Agenda of Hope”.
