European Movement Ireland have launched a report on the campaign that they undertook in relation to the European Citizen’s Initiative. As part of this a poll was undertaken in Cork, Galway, Dublin North and Dublin South on May 7th 2010.

The findings are very interesting.

  • 86% of People had not heard of the ECI
  • 70% of people would consider using the ECI

The poll also found that under 18 (5%) and over 65 (4%) were least aware of the ECI. men aged 30-49 were most aware (20%) while not one woman over 65 had heard of it.

Do make sure you read the full report. Some interesting facts there for people who may wish to avail of the European Citizens Initiative procedure.

Europe Day: How it went

Canary EMISo today I took part in the European Movement Ireland poll canvass in Cork on the European Citizens Initiative. A canvass also took place in Galway and Dublin. We got a great reaction from the people in Cork and I heard the same from Galway and Dublin. We were out in our T-shirts handing out lollipops and pens and postcards with the poll on it. (The front of the postcards are the images in this post). Expect to see more European Movement events like this in the future!

The results of the three polls will be added together. But, it doesn’t end there! You too can take part. You just need to fill in this survey. Its five questions and really short! Thank you!
