As part of its awareness raising campaign, EAPN Ireland has published a three minute motion-graphic entitled ‘the Lisbon Treaty’s Social Side’ (see below). The production aims to give a brief overview of how the Lisbon Treaty impacts on social issues and the direction of the European Union.
“EAPN Ireland is concerned that the campaign is once again being over-shadowed by political gamesmanship and personality contests. ‘The Lisbon Treaty’s Social Side’ briefly and clearly explores important issues like the Charter of Fundamental Rights, the Citizens Initiative and the Social Clause. We are a non-partisan organisation and we’re not asking to people to vote for or against, we’re simply asking people to go to the polls armed with the facts,” said Ms. Visser.
‘The Lisbon Treaty’s Social Side’ was produced with a view to reaching new and diverse audiences and is available below or by clicking here. We’re asking members, affiliates, community and voluntary groups and anyone who is interested to send the video to friends, colleagues and family in an effort to raise awareness on the social aspects of the Treaty.
The staff of EAPN Ireland want to thank all those who donated their time and lent their enthusiasm to this project. EAPN Ireland is particularly grateful to Dan Flynn, a recent graduate of Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology. Dan composed and produced the motion graphics for ‘The Lisbon Treaty’s Social Side’. EAPN Ireland is also very grateful to Jennifer Ryan, who did the voiceover, and to Ulrich Schnauss for allowing us to use one of his compositions as a backing-track.
