About Us

The story so far ...

We are a network of volunteers who participated in the European Parliament’s #thistimeimvoting (now together.eu) campaign in 2019.

The high voter turnout in the European elections motivated us to stay envolved. Why not connect with all these amazing people across Europe?

That’s why in November 2019 we set up a MeetEU pilot group with people from different European countries. In March 2020 we opened the MeetEU Discord server for all together.eu supporters, in April 2020 for the general public.

The initial monthly discussions have now become one event per week. Great, the European exchange of ideas is picking up speed!

The People Behind

Hi there, my name is Tina. I believe in European friendship and community spirit. That's why I initiated MeetEU.

My vision for Europe is a continent where people feel “United In Diversity” from the bottom of their hearts.

Hi, I'm Moritz. Thanks to the European Union and the desire to shape the future together, we are experiencing peace instead of war and dreams without national borders.
I believe that only together we can preserve this achievement for future generations, therefore: Let’s make togetherEU, with you.

Heyyy, my name is Joshua (but you can call me Joshi <3 ). I initiated the German together.eu social media team.

I'm the MeetEU server owner and responsible for all administrative things. In addition, I help to spread the European spirit around EU-citizens.

Hello, my name is Lea. I like MeetEU because it brings together people from (almost) all over Europe to discuss and speak about important topics regarding the EU and living in the European Union.
Looking forward to all the exciting discussions and talks we're going to have in the future.

Hi, my name is Eoin (pronounced like the name Owen). I am a computer science student from Ireland and a proud supporter of the European project and believe strongly that the EU really does unite us in our diversity, in no other union in the world would you find so many cultures, languages, religions and ethnicities all living together united, under our shared values of respect for human dignity and human rights, freedom, democracy, equality and the rule of law.

Hello everyone! I'm David and I'm helping out at MeetEU.

Europe to me is a great step toward a peaceful and united world and I want to contribute to keeping the project alive, now that it is under pressure from authoritarians.
