Elections 2009

You(th) can make the Europe of Tomorrow!
2009 is the year of European Elections and MIJARC Europe couldn't lose this opportunity to make the voice of rural youth to be heard!

A flyer specially designed for the local groups of KLJ Belgium, KLJB Germany, MRJC France, MJRC Spain, JARC Portugal, EiR Poland and CSF Bulgaria was prepared and translated in 8 languages (English, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Flemish, Polish, and Bulgarian), being disseminated to 130.000 rural youngsters in 7 countries of Europe.

This flyer aims at:
> informing local groups about the European elections and inviting them to go to vote;
> inviting local groups to send postcards to the candidates in the elections to present our 5 proposals for Europe;
> inviting them to act locally by organizing meetings with MEPs, candidates in the European elections, public debates with local population, etc
