May 9th, 2019 - DeineWahl! 2019 - Information event for the European elections
We Europeans have an important duty in a few weeks – VOTE for our European Parliament! We believe in democracy and in our privilege to vote. Therefore, Munich Members supports the Global Shapers initiative DeineWahl! since day one. On May 9th DeineWahl! 2019 – Europawahl invited the youngest politicians of each party, who can be elected for the European parliament, to answer questions of young voters.
It was a night of intense discussions including all political views from left to right, challenging the young politicians to stand for their believes and values, but also asking the young voters to make up their minds and get their questions out in the open. We spoke about active European programs to protect our environment, combat youth unemployment and strengthen our European identity.
Of interest for our Munich Members: FDP (German Free Democratic Party) want to enable more funds in the European Union for innovation and plan to support European start-ups for inventing the next big solutions e.g. for the pollution with micro-plastics. Other parties pledged for more funds to support innovations in the field of waste management and to clean our - already polluted - waters and seas.
We thank our partners Global Shapers Munich and the Center for Digital Technology and Management for their work to realise this DeineWahl! format in its third consecutive year and are delighted that so many young voters showed their interest and participated actively.
