Ahead of the 2019 European Parliamentary elections, we wanted to familiarize readers with the subject of the European Union. Show it as a community not only of countries, but above all of its inhabitants.

Every Saturday, Gazeta Wyborcza, published a supplement, entitled ‘Our Europe’, dedicated to the European Union. It contained a variety of texts on European topics, including political news, interviews with well-known European personalities, portraits of ordinary Europeans, pre-election debates and polls, as well as quizzes, tests and crosswords of knowledge about the Union.

We wanted our readers to learn many points of view on the European community, that’s why the supplement included texts from foreign press, including the Financial Times, The Economist and Politico.

The supplement “Our Europe” was available both in the paper and mobile version, as well as on the website. On our website, in a specially prepared section, also included video materials and live coverage of the most important events accompanying elections to the EP.

Readers who subscribe to the newsletter “Our Europe” received additional articles with the latest news and analysis from Europe.

We maintained regular contact with the readers on social media – on the fan page “Our Europe” / Eurovision we published articles on the subject of the European Union, as well as video materials and chats with journalists and important figures of Polish and European politics.

The abuse of power comes as no surprise. With the “News from Poland” service, Gazeta Wyborcza and Gazeta Wyborcza foundation are joining forces to help those with limited access to media coverage about Poland due to the language barrier. Our goal is to guarantee open access to high quality journalism for expats and English speakers interested in Polish affairs.
