OneEurope is one of the largest European grassroots think-tanks created and managed entirely by volunteers. Our purpose is to foster greater debate and empower the voice of European citizens. We see achieving this by continuously increasing the size and engagement of our readers and gaining more influence in the public debate on the future of Europe.
Our mission is to raise awareness about issues relevant to Europeans, encourage debates on key topics, give a voice to citizens, stimulate freedom of speech in Europe, provide opportunities to Europeans, and build bridges between cultures.
OneEurope is completely non-partisan and has no political line, or agenda. We are developing tools for more direct involvement of our readership community and looking for partnerships with projects or organisations who communicate European topics in a more emotionally captivating manner.
OneEurope started as a Facebook group, created in the summer of 2011, at the height of the Eurocrisis. We wanted to create a strong movement for trans-European debate and exchange of ideas. Many people heard about the group through word-of-mouth and hundreds joined within a few days. We channeled this potential into the media platform OneEurope.
From then on OneEurope took its own momentum. Webdesigners volunteered to create a website, Bloggers and Journalists offered to write articles and many other volunteers started helping out with Editing, Social Media Management, Graphic Design, Marketing and many other roles .
In April 2016, OneEurope held a week-long seminar for 30 participants from different European countries in Berlin as an opportunity for us and our partner organisations to develop more ideas in this direction. "Captivating Europe" has been funded by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union.
We are completely independent, non-partisan and non-profit. We do not dependent on any funding directly or indirectly, from the European Union or any other institutions and organisations.
OneEurope inevitably has some running costs and in order to remain independent they are covered through donations by our readers and supporters, as well as by patrons and adverts.
None of us are paid a salary. All donations and proceeds from advertisements are re-invested back into OneEurope.
Please support us by donating an amount of your choice. Even a small amount makes a big difference: http://one-europe.net/donate
OneEurope hosts selected adverts, from organisations, business and events related to Europe (for more information send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org ).
