The European Union offers numerous opportunities for citizens, supports jobs and growth and helps protect people. If you are interested in finding out more about it, I invite you to discover numerous concrete examples and human stories:
Opportunities: from training to travelling, to starting a business, benefitting from strong consumer and passenger rights, taking action against climate change, to stopping plastic getting into our seas and to showing solidarity with those in need – just ave a look at #EUandMe and “What Europe does for me”.
Jobs and growth: the EU is helping to create jobs and revitalise communities. Discover the stories behind that are made possible thanks to a little help from the EU: InvestEU.
Protecting citizens: get to know the ordinary heroes who work every day, hand in hand and across borders to protect all of us against forest fires, human trafficking, cybercrime, rare diseases and dangerous toys at EUprotects.
Looking ahead, Europe also needs you to help shape its future, for example by contributing to the consultations on the future of Europe, setting up a Citizens’ Initiative, following a Citizen’s Dialogue and by participating in the European elections on 23-26 May 2019.
I hope that you consider this information useful and interesting. Best regards
