Europe and you

As a follow-up to the previous post, other initiatives for European citizens (also in their capacity of consumers) are:

1. The launch of the broadest public consultation ever on EU citizens' rights. Have you ever encountered difficulties moving to another EU country or shopping cross-border? European Commissioner Viviane Reding invites all European citizens to fill out a brief questionnaire to express their views on citizens' rights in the EU. See the press release and the questionnaire 'your rights, your future'. The consultation will be open till 9 September 2012.

2. A manifesto for re-building Europe from the bottom up, published by 90 European intellectuals. The manifesto introduces the idea of a 'European year of volunteering for everyone', utilising existing programmes such as the European Voluntary Service and Erasmus for All.
