On Tuesday, 9 November 2021 from 14:00-15:30 CET, the European Movement International and the Institute for European Policy Europeum will hold a Democracy Table discussion with Czech stakeholders to present the public opinion poll results from Listen to Europe: Reaching Beyond our Base Audience (LTE).
Listen to Europe is a long-term initiative aimed at helping civil society to set up targeted and informed campaigning based on data and segmentation of audiences. To this end, we have conducted public opinion surveys and social media listening to investigate drivers of citizens' behaviour as well as the main topics and narratives present on social media in each of the eight project countries. We have examined the attitudes of European citizens towards the EU and democracy, along with their opinions about specific issues like the environment, immigration, gender equality and human rights.
Now that the results of the poll are analysed and ready, we will hold an online event with the intention to share and discuss the findings of our research.
The purpose of the meeting will be to share the polling results and discuss audience segmentation, framing, targeting, communications and campaigns related to democracy and specific issues that civil society tries to promote and advocate for.
