to the European Foundation Centre (EFC) memorandum on the European Parliamentary elections 2014

1. We support the compilation of a memorandum for MEP candidates.

2. Social media outreach should be exercised to mobilise voters especially young ones.

3. The importance of fighting/stopping eurosceptic and populist views and encourage the citizens to participate are equally important aspects.

4. Strong emphasis should be placed on Eastern Europe where EP elections do not have a long history and turnout was especially low in 2009. Best practice exchanges should be encouraged.

5. Therefore and in view of the above European House (Hungary) has established a civil society consortium with partners from Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Romania and Slovakia to organise a programme series on the upcoming EP elections with creative activities including

- The ideal European Parliamentary candidate;

- Promotion of participation at the EP elections
Partners in EU member states will launch a consultation/voting over the internet on the most important characteristics of an EP candidate representing European commitment and values. Based on the results the profile of the “ideal” candidate will be identified. A local street action is organised in each EU member state prior to the EP elections presenting the profile with the assistance of a spectacular installation. Part of the installation can be taken home by visitors as a reminder to participate at the elections.

- Geocaching game
We will set up geocaching boxes in participating countries at locations relevant to the European Union (Europe Points, Europe Direct offices etc.). Information will be spread among students of schools to encourage finding them.

Description of geocaching
Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called \"geocaches\" or \"caches\", anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook where the geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it with their established code name. After signing into the log, the cache must be placed back exactly where the person found it. There are over 5 million people do geocaching and is thought to be ideal to involve younger generations.

- Europe in the classroom; debate on the future of Europe
Europe in the classroom is an educational tool with the purpose to involve the younger generation (14-20 years old) using innovative methods. Project partners will prepare the Europe Survival Kit – a box containing information and education materials on the EU to be used in grammar schools. The Kit will also include geocaching instructions to follow. This will create youth communities interested in European matters and European citizenship.

The target group of our project is youth, first voters.
