Interview with Hans Mund, creator of Rock the Union, the upcoming Tour around the EU to encourage voters to exercise the rights in the next EU election in 2014.
In the last EU Parliament elections of 2009 only 43% of voters turned out. Hence the need for citizens to get more involved in the direction the EU takes in the future. But what is best way to tackle voter disillusionment?
The Rock the union tour aims to engage with citizens, get their views on the EU and it's direction, promote their taking part in the EU electoral process and listen to what citizens have to say about EU politicians and their expectations.
Mr Mund and the Rock the Union tour will visit all 28 EU member states from the middle of September to May 2014.
Here Owen Stafford spoke with Hans Mund to elaborate on this upcoming tour.
