VoteSwiper App for European Elections 2019

PROBLEM STATEMENT:


Brexit and other political events we see that the young generation is increasingly detached from politics and that their voice is not being heard.




TARGET GROUP:


European youth eligible for voting in the EU elections.




PROPOSED SOLUTION:


We aim at boosting voter turnout of young people for the EU election 2019 by launching an app in all EU countries that allows you to match tinder-like with your favourite parties by swiping left and right on political questions. Each question has an explanatory video which allows to learn more about politics. This results in a ranking of parties that fit best to you, as well as a playful way of learning more about politics.



HUB ACTIVITIES:


The app has successfully launched as WahlSwiper for past German elections (www.wahlswiper.de by movact), reaching over 1 million. Now, we are activating our network to set up teams in each country, to create country-specific content.


For now, we need 1) funding for the app, especially the video-content, and 2) to spread the word to find active volunteers.
