The European Commission launches a campaign on Tuenti to improve EU knowledge


Along with the celebration of the  the Internal Market Month the European Commission has launched  in Spain a game called Vecindary in the social network Tuenti.

Single Market Month, an initiative from the European Parliament, the European Commission and other European institutions, runs from 23 September until 23 October 2013. It will bring citizens and EU policy-makers together online to discuss progress made so far, the challenges that remain and ideas for the future.

The European Commission wants to use the potential of communication and outreach provided by the social network Tuenti to foster Spanish young people the knowledge of history, geography and culture ofthe 28 countries that form part of the European Union.

The objective is that young people born after 1986, learn about the European Union and help them to understand how was to live, travel or work in another European country before the creation of the internal market.

To participate, you need be registered in Tuenti, access to the website of the European Union and press "Play Now". Until the end of next October all Tuenti users have the challenge to develop a virtual tour of Europe before the European Union existed. The players with the highest score will win

iPad. In addition, participants may also propose ideas to improve the European Internal Market in the Your Ideas For Europe platform as well as discuss with European Commision  experts.

This iniciative comes after a manifesto to harness the growth of the tech sector and increase the number of successful start ups across Europe.

Members of The Leaders Club are: Daniel Ek (Spotify), Kaj Hed (Rovio),Joanna Shields (Tech City UK), Reshma Sohoni (Seedcamp), Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten (The Next Web), Zaryn Dentzel (Tuenti), Niklas Zennström (Atomico) and Lars Hinrichs (Hackfwd).
