Do you have an interest in the European Union? Have you always wanted to write for SpunOut but never really known what to write about? Do you care about how the EU impacts your life and your friends and family?
The EU Hub is a section of the SpunOut.ie website which focuses on the work of the European Parliament. The hub aims to inform readers about the main functions of the parliament, and highlight how EU policies affect young people’s day to day lives. The aim is to get our readers informed about the EU ahead of next year’s parliamentary elections.

We’re looking for anyone aged 16-25 who is interested in writing articles or creating videos for the EU Hub. The content can focus on any aspect of the EU or European Parliament that you are interested in and that you think other people aged 16-25 are interested in.
How do I get started?
