JCI Malta is organising ‘Speed Networking with MEP candidates’, a day shadowing competition and school visits through a recently launched a project ‘Step Up for Europe - Make it Count’. The project which will run up to the MEP elections on the 25th of May, is being run with the aim of equipping young first-time voters between the ages of 16 and 19, as well as foreigners living in Malta voting for the first time, with all they need to know about making an informed decision.

Leading up to the MEP Elections, JCI Malta will be visiting a number of Secondary Schools in order to educate 5th Form students on their voting rights and tell them what they need to know about the upcoming elections, as well as how important it is to be an active citizen in today’s world. Furthermore, JCI Malta is also providing the local community with the opportunity to meet as many MEP candidates as possible and speak to them on a one-to-one basis for a few minutes. The event will be happening on the 26th of April at Is-Suq tal-Belt.

Another initiative organised by JCI Malta, A Day in the Life of an MEP Candidate, is centred around giving first-time voters the opportunity to spend a whole day with an MEP candidate and follow their daily tasks and events. The shadowing sessions will be happening all throughout the months of March and April.
