The EU reconnecng with citizens The European Union is less complicated than it ap.
This booklet is an attempt to show that, in its everyday activities, the Union in fact addresses many of your concerns as citizens, consumers or workers.
We have made a selection of 10 concrete examples out of the many areas where the EU is active. Each one demonstrates in a different way what the EU has done in 2006 to promote your economic and social wellbeing, how it has acted to protect the environment or how it is increasingly helping out in global hot spots.
The European Commission launched an EUwide consultation process in February to get the Union to connect with citizens whose worries over Europe were evident when voters in France and the Netherlands rejected the draft EU Constitution in mid2005. Results of the consultation, involving stakeholders from all over Europe, from public bodies to private citizens, will be published in spring 2007.
In the meantime, we have put several other measures in place in order to give individual citizens more say on EU issues. One example is the ‘Debate Europe’ website. We also have a network of more than 400 local Europe Direct information centres in all EU countries. They help answer your questions and create contacts. You can also call the freephone helpline of the Europe Direct contact centre from anywhere in the EU on00 800 7 8 9 10 11.
