BIRN Serbia launches campaign to promote EU values

BIRN Serbia begins its new campaign titled “Europe, It is You” in February in 25 municipalities and cities across south-east and south-west Serbia. The campaign is part of an EU Progress programme to find the best idea for the promotion of EU values in that part of the country.

BIRN Serbia and its local partners will organise several different programmes until June 2013 with the help of the EU Commission Office in Belgrade and the European Integration Office in Serbia.

The “Europe, It is You” campaign aims to promote the process of joining the EU and present positive examples from Serbia showing a series of EU values that have already been put into practice.

By connecting local media, local administrations and various other groups, BIRN Serbia will bring together all stakeholders to improve conditions in these areas of Serbia.

Anyone interested will be able to follow work of the campaign online and can also contribute by posting their own video clips or impressions of the campaign on a specially-designed web page.  There will also be several training activities and street actions.

The campaign’s keynote event will take place on Europe Day on May 9th, when synchronised street actions will be held in five cities in the region.
