Democracy Table | Finland

On Thursday, 14 October 2021 from 16:00-17:15 CEST (17:00 – 18:15 EEST), the European Movement International and the European Movement Finland will hold a Democracy Table discussion with Finnish stakeholders to present the public opinion poll results from Listen to Europe: Reaching Beyond our Base Audience (LTE).

LTE is a long-term initiative aimed at helping civil society to set up targeted and informed campaigning based on data and segmentation of audiences. Towards this end, we have conducted public opinion surveys and social media monitoring that investigate drivers of the behaviours of citizens as well as the main topics and narratives present in the social media in each of eight project countries.  

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.
