Your voice for Europe

Since its inception in 1987, the internationally active foundation EuroNatur has been campaigning to connect people and nature in a peaceful Europe. However, this peace, which has long been taken for granted, is now at stake. Nationalistic tendencies are on the increase and societies are drifting apart. But Europe must not be allowed to fail! Despite some valid criticism, for example, of its common agricultural policy, the European Union is a success story and guarantor of our freedom and prosperity.

To mark the occasion of the European Parliament elections taking place from 23-26 May 2019, we asked EuroNatur partners and friends from nine member states to share with us their own messages for Europe. Meet these committed Europeans via their short video statements (subtitled in English) and cast your vote at the end of May - for a Europe which is diverse and open to the world!


Europe is more than the sum of its parts! Click the national flags on the puzzle pieces and take a look at the messages of our European partners.
