Active Citizens for Europe
The first step of the project activities aimed to organise a serious of Regional Meetings in each partner locality, in which citizens and entities were given their opions about any European Union matters:
Our Regional Meetings
1: The media uses the terms Europe and European Union? What is your understanding of these?
Political, social and economic union located in Europe, composed by its Member States and regulated by a specific system of laws aiming at ensuring equal rights to all citizens and social integration (Italy)
EU is an organisation that deals with the trade and agriculture regulation, import and export as well (France)
2: Each Citizen of the EU has fundamental rights. Are you aware what these cover? Sould all living in your country be given equal rights and duties, the right to vote?
3: Who would you consider to be an immigrant?
4: VIEWS ON WORKER MOBILITY, BOOST OR HINDRANCE?
5: Do you encounter or see others encounter barriers in accessing and enjoying services such as health and education because of the immigrants? What are they and how could they be overcome?
Summing up all the different opinions, the main idea is that it is possible for immigrants to encounter barriers in accessing and enjoying service such as health and education. Linguist barriers and access to information were common barriers amongst all partners
6: What steps could be taken to improve how individuals and communities get on with each others?
