During the summer of 2018, Social Platform, of which Eurocarers is a member, organises a survey among national, regional and local civil society organisations working in the social field and who are members of the European networks forming Social Platform.
In May 2019, we all are going to elect a new European Parliament. This survey aims to find out how the local, regional and national NGOs working in the social field view the European Union, what in their view works and what needs improvement, what are their priorities when it comes to the EU agenda, and what are their key demands to the candidates to the next European Parliament. The survey also looks at the obstacles their constituencies face when it comes to the European parliament elections and what could encourage their participation.
We want to make sure that the voices of civil society organisations working in the social field across the European Union are heard by the people who will represent us and who will be making laws and policies affecting all people across the EU for the next 5 years
The survey is available in all EU languages here: http://www.socialplatform.org/news/your-vision-for-europe-survey/. It will remain open until 30 August 2018.
After the survey is concluded, the Social Platform is planning to organise an event at the European Parliament in October 2018, launching the results of the survey. This event will be an important step and a basis for shaping Social Paltform’ European Elections 2019 campaign.
