ONE VOTE 2014 launches in Germany with a morning TV appearance, hip-hop artists and the Brandenburg Gate

Compiled with Josephin Hetz. 

This month, ONE Germany launched the ONE VOTE 2014 campaign with our Youth Ambassadors in Berlin. Our 30 Ambassadors have already been busy, contacting MEPs to sign the ONE VOTE 2014 pledge.

Here’s what we got up to during the two exciting days of the launch.

After a full day of introduction sessions on campaigning, the media and ONE’s policy work, 5 of our Ambassadors had the chance to join the audience of Germany’s biggest morning TV show, Morgenmagazin. The show’s host even said hello and gave them the chance to talk about ONE on air. A great start to the day!

The Youth Ambassadors then met MEP Sylvia Kaufmann of Social Democratic Party, candidate Alexandra Thein of the Free Democratic Party and Paola Giaculli of the Left party. The Ambassadors were so convincing, they had to sign the pledge.

We were lucky enough to be joined for part of the day by hip-hop band Culcha Candela outside the Brandenburg Gate. The band was fantastic and readily approached the crowd to explain our campaign. There were quite a few teenage girls who were VERY keen to talk to them and have their picture taken with them too.
