Why should I care about EU elections? 

Debate with Lefteris Papagiannakis

For the second activity of our program “I vote for myself! Redefining a common path to 2024 EU elections”, Inter Alia will host a debate together with Lefteris Papagiannakis, Director of the Greek Council for Refugees and former Assistant to a Member of the European Parliament in Brussels. 

Inter Alia invites you to engage in a stimulating debate about how EU elections work and why they are relevant, what and who people actually vote for, what happens after the Members of the European Parliament are elected and start their daily work, and learn some “behind the scenes” information

In a time when we feel disconnected from representative democracy, we will try to explore together the reasons why we should be interested in voting for EU elections and understand how, as citizens, we can learn to use existing instruments to change policies and put pressure on decision-makers inside EU institutions. 

If you are curious to exchange points of view and discuss the EU and the European Parliament in a non-conventional way and through a critical approach, this debate is what you need! 

We will wait for you on Monday 2 October at the European Parliament Liaison Office, Athens, from 5.30 to 7.30 pm

Registration is required to enter the European Parliament’s premises!
