Europe of peoples - each and every person matters
It is time to build a citizen’s Europe in the true sense of the word. The webinar will explore several aspects of the functioning of the European Union and focus mainly on what has to be improved in the framework of EU citizens rights; what has to be changed in peoples’ voice to be heard better within institutions; and finally, how should a citizen’s Europe look like by 2050.
