What does this campaign want to achieve?

The FAFCE campaign aims at encouraging candidates for the elections to the European Parliament to commit themselves to promoting family friendly policies (family mainstreaming) if elected. The campaign is directed at the candidates, through each family and family association who are invited to raise their voice to call for family friendly policies.

The European Parliament elections are an important opportunity for the family! The decisions taken by the European Union influence the daily life of every family across Europe.

The EU elections have an impact both on the European Parliament (751 Members) and on the European Commission (28 Commissioners) that there are renewed every 5 years. The low voter turnout rate at the EU elections in all Member States can be seen as an opportunity for families to vote for those candidates that are ready to commit themselves to family friendly policies.

Mothers, fathers and adult children can all take the opportunity to elect family friendly candidates!
