Values and rights, rule of law, security
#TheFutureIsYours Looking after citizens’ freedoms
The way LGBT+ people are treated varies considerably in the different EU Member States — should it continue in this way? What are the Danes thinking? The Danes are now given a unique opportunity to directly influence the EU’s LGBT+ policy by answering the 9 questions of the project → https://mediehuset-kbh.dk/fremtidens-europa/ With the project ‘Europe of the future’, the Danish citizens are involved in the formulation of a Danish position on LGBT+ in the EU. The aim of the project is to collect the Danes’ opinions on 9 issues related to LGBT+ rights in the EU. The survey will run in November and until 3 January. The results are presented and discussed at free 3 webinars, including experts and NGOs. You will also find Webinarene in the events on this page.
Event reportThe purpose of the event was to involve citizens in Denmark on the topics: “Values and Rights, Rule of Law, Security”. The target group was young Danes up to and including 35 years of age with an interest in ethics, human rights and LGBT rights. The event has consisted of the following elements: — Production and publication of the questionnaire ‘9 questions on LGBT+ rights in the EU’. — Digital platform/landing page — A digital platform online that informs about the project and invites citizens to participate in the survey. — Social media and campaigns — Through a series of information activities, citizens have been invited to participate in the survey and debate (@FremtidensEuropa). — Data processing — Citizens’ replies have been processed and compiled in a report. The study “9 questions on LGBT+ rights” has been conducted as planned. The results of the questions gave rise to 9 ideas/proposals — these are attached as ideas for this event. The results of the study are compiled in a detailed report, which can be found under the ideas/proposals attached, or here: https://mediehuset-kbh.dk/fremtidens-europa The study focused on the following topics that citizens should address through 9 questions. Between 20 October and 31 December 2021, 1742 persons participated in the survey. Topics: — Rainbow families in the EU — LGBT+ discrimination in the EU — gender policy in the EU In order to achieve as valid and objective results as possible in the survey, the design of the nine issues was crucial. The questions are therefore designed as “statements” with which participants can agree more or less on a 5 scale: Totally agree — partly agree — neither agree nor disagree — partly disagree — completely disagree In this way a more nuanced result is achieved, rather than “yes — no” questions. The questions are also designed in such a way that the participant has to read the question carefully and cannot simply agree/comprehensively all the way through. The participants in the survey are evenly distributed by gender and regions in Denmark, according to population. The target group is also well hit, as 85.8 % of the survey participants are under 36 years of age. 12 campaigns have been produced for Facebook, YouTube and Instagram platforms — a total of 15 different advertisements. The exposures during the project period are 404,000 — the number of unique people reached in the target group is 153,000. Frequency (number of views per person) is 2.64. All ads had a link to the survey "9 questions on LGBT+ rights in the EU. Read more about the overall project in the report here: https://mediehuset-kbh.dk/fremtidens-europa
