The Delegation of the EU to Turkey launched the social media campaign, "My Neighbour, the Ambassador" last week.  Ambassadors of the EU Member States to Ankara and the head of the EU Delegation in 60" videos spoke about Turkey, their engagement with the Turkish people and culture, as well as their favourite social activities in their host country. The Ambassadors offered a glimpse of their daily lives and shared messages in Turkish. 

The campaign received remarkable media and public interest.  Nearly all TV outlets in the country used these videos and the gala event in their news reports; Turkish TVs broadcasted 34 reports, 5 national dailies and more than 130 digital outlets, including all top-ranked sites, reported on the social media campaign.

At the gala event, the guests voted for the "Best neighbour" and Germany's Ambassador to Turkey Martin Erdmann won with a video detailing his passion for the outdoors with the slogan "Motorcycles:  flying carpets available to everyone". 

In the other videos,  the Ambassadors of the United Kingdom, Sweden, Slovenia, Slovakia, Romania, Portugal, Poland, Malta, Luxembourg, Lithuania, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Estonia, Denmark, Belgium and the EU Delegation shared their love, appreciation and passion for Turkish food, art and nature and much more. The Head of EU Delegation to Turkey, Ambassador Christian Berger, cooked the Turkish stew "Güveç" and said that "Güveç is one of his favourite dishes because it symbolizes many things that are so great in Turkey and combines great ingredients from around the country”.
