Participation campaign

For a strong Europe and a bright future

What does Europe mean to you? What are your wishes for the future of Europe? Why is Europe important? Join our participatory campaign and send us your answers! Because the European elections will take place on June 9.

Around 350 million voters will decide on the future of the European Union in early June. Evonik calls on people to participate in the elections and to vote for democratic parties - because a high voter turnout is important for strengthening democracy and for an effective EU.

The EU is a guarantee of peace, freedom and prosperity. It offers some 450 million people a safe home and one of the highest standards of living in the world. Freedom to travel without border formalities, Europe-wide consumer and environmental protection, a wide range of goods and services and the euro as the single currency are just some of the many benefits and achievements.

Maintaining a strong community of values and economy

In times of globalization, digitalization and international location competition, a united European Union is of immense overall economic importance. Major challenges such as climate and environmental protection, industrial transformation, migration and the resolution of military conflicts can only be tackled together. "A strong and united Europe is also of central importance for our competitiveness and innovative strength. After all, the EU provides a stable and reliable basis for investment in research and development as well as an important sales market for products and services. A successful EU therefore also means successful companies and thus jobs and prosperity for all of us," says Harald Schwager, Deputy Chairman of the Executive Board of Evonik.

Do you also want to stand up for Europe and its achievements? We are looking for Evonik voices from all over Europe!
