#OpenEurope – an appeal for stories

Get involved, tell us your stories, pass on the news! Mediapart this year launched operation #OpenEurope in partnership with seven European and Tunisia media outlets plus a number of associations, collectives and NGOs. The aim: to make people more aware of the migrant tragedy and pass on details of how people all over Europe are doing something about it. For that, your participation is vital.

Get involved, tell us your stories, pass on the news! Mediapart this year launched operation #OpenEurope in partnership with seven European and Tunisia media outlets plus a number of associations, collectives and NGOs. The aim: to make people more aware of the migrant tragedy and pass on details of how people all over Europe are doing something about it. For that, your participation is vital.

Our hope is to tell how, far removed from the speeches of political leaders, people in European societies can work together to help those in need. The key players in this chain of solidarity are associations, collective groups, individual citizens and migrants and refugees themselves.

To help make this happen we invite you to:

Publish blogs in The Club, the blog space on Mediapart, making 'openeurope' one of your keywords. The #OpenEurope page on Mediapart can be found here.

Or, if you're not a Mediapart subscriber, get in touch with us by writing to: openeurope@mediapart.fr.
