Posted by Bradley in : eu , trackback

The European Year of Citizens has its own website. Georgios Papastamkos, Vice President of the European Parliament said:

EU is lacking a truly European public sphere. EU citizens should become the centre of the public debate of Europe’s future. It is high time the EU came closer to its citizens, firstly to listen and then to explain; explain that for more than half a century Europe has been a space of peace and friendship, rights and opportunities, mobility and exchanges, progress and prosperity, education and culture.
