#DidEUknow Campaign

In a year when Brexit has dominated the news and political agendas, the value of the European Union and Ireland’s place in it has probably never been so significant, but just how much do young people know about the EU? 

Running from 11 - 15 November, the #DidEUknow Young Social Innovators campaign aims to deepen awareness amongst young people of the role that the EU plays in their daily lives.

Through a series of online interviews, young people will be introduced to some of Ireland’s newly elected MEPs and how they represent Ireland’s interests in Europe.

With a particular focus on social issues that are of concern to young people, the #DidEUknow campaign will explore how these issues are dealt with at a European level.

A week-long fun and interactive Instagram quiz that will be promoted throughout social media exploring how many basic facts young people actually know about the EU.

This campaign is funded by the Communicating Europe Initiative of the Department of Foreign Affairs.
