Our Mission and Goals
Making Europe Again (MEA) is a Non-Governmental Organisation which sees itself as a mediator between the EU’s Institutions and its citizens. The NGO supports the former by familiarising citizens with the European Union and its work, and the latter by bringing matters of citizens concerns and interest on the EU’s agenda.
25 March 2017 marked the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome that led to the creation of the European Economic Community, now known as the European Union.
A political crisis has gripped the European Union. Refugees from various war-torn countries are fleeing to the EU by the millions. In the still tangible wake of the recent economic crisis, solidarity and cohesion within the Union has been endangered. The citizens of the United Kingdom have voted to leave the European Union — and others might potentially follow. Recent studies show that young EU citizens generally have a negative sentiment towards the European Union. Especially in member states suffering from high rates of youth unemployment like Greece, Spain, and Italy, adolescents feel neglected.
Recalling the Treaty, we created this Organisation in order to revive the European Project, re-evaluating the future of the Union’s identity, its core values as well as obligatory changes.
In short, we want to renew the European Project.
• We aim to reconnect the European Union and its institutions with European citizens.
• We want to raise political awareness and democratic participation all across Europe.
• We want to act as the youths’ voice in order to show their common interest in reviving and reshaping the European Project.
• We are cooperating with other organizations and participating in their projects to reach shared goals.
