Why vote?

The upcoming elections are a chance to send a loud message that equality, solidarity, democracy, care for our environment and future generations, and social, environmental and economic justice should be at the heart of how we live. This means saying clearly that Europe needs a radical change of direction. That people and planet – not profits of big business – should come first.

Across Europe Friends of the Earth members are organising debates, street exhibitions and other events ahead of the elections, bringing people together to discuss their visions for a kinder, greener, fairer Europe, and spreading the message “Vote!”

Voting in the European elections means having a say on the direction the EU takes for the next five years in areas such as international trade, fighting climate change, protecting nature and human rights. MEPs not only shape new legislation, but also scrutinise other EU institutions.
