European Movement Ireland’s mission is to develop the connection between Ireland and Europe, and to achieve greater public understanding of and engagement with the European Union and with our European partners. We do this by providing objective information and by stimulating debate.
Our aim is to reach a wide range of audiences throughout Ireland, and we co-operate with the Government and with like-minded organisations. Separately, we work to inform our European colleagues, through international networks such as European Movement International, about the role Ireland plays in Europe and the EU, and the role that the EU plays in Ireland.
We believe that Ireland is best served by a population who understand the EU and the broader community of European nations, and engage constructively in its future development. While we support European integration and Ireland’s membership of the European Union, we are independent and act with integrity.
In uncertain times, we are working to frame Ireland’s place in Europe in accessible, understandable and engaging ways, with communities at home and abroad. We are adaptable, forward thinking and creative in our approach, and this philosophy underpins all our work, whether it be innovative digital campaigns, or engaging, citizens-driven forums. In explaining Europe, our goal is to reach our audiences in ways that are relevant to them.
