Is a united Europa is a political question or a human question?

For EurOpinion the united Europe is not a political issue or, certainly, not only. Rather than political we deem a united Europa to be a human issue, a community of citizens, of people in all their diversity that live together within this political construction now called EU. Each individual person, citizen, human being, is the smallest element of a whole that collectively makes up our united Europa (of course, extensible to the rest of the world, but for practical reasons just EU countries for now).

Some first simple questions focused on the individual european person

For EurOpinion each individual person is a basic building block that is just as important as the whole, so we consider it interesting, necessary, and, in fact, useful to know how we are individually. Probably this will give a greater understanding about Europa as a whole. Probably also about each other of and maybe even about ourselves. More ahead EurOpinion thinks about getting into deeper and more significant issues, but let's start with some simple questions.

Do you know Europa as community of people?

PLAY VIDEO ►►► europa-comunidad

One thing is the EU as a political entity, that you may like more or less, or not like at all.

But how about Europa in a non-political sense, in fact, as a community? Our continent enjoys a rich diversity of peoples, cultures and languages. How well do you know the community of people within this political union you are living in?

To start with, how much interaction do you have with other europeans in your daily life?
and then:

  • Which European countries have you ever visited?
  • Have you ever lived, worked and/or studied in any of them? (say, a year or more)
  • From our rich offer in languages which one(s) do you speak?
  • And, very important, from which countries do you have friends or maybe even (had) a love?

It may seem a long list, but you can skip your own country and the countries that don't apply.
(the countries are subdivided in blocks of decreasing EU commitment (open borders, use of Euro), within that ordered by year of entry and then alphabetically - source 1, source 2)

Do you understand the European Union?

PLAY VIDEO ►►► How does the EU work?

In theory, the European Union is an entity that exists for the good of its citizens. Therefore it seems obvious that, to begin with, EU inhabitants should actually understand it: knowing how it works, what advantages it offers or how they can actively participate to improve it, amongst other.

How well do you feel you understand the European Union?
There are some topics in the newspapers and on tv-news we receive information about every day. How do you rate their importance and how would information about the EU (news or how it works) compare to that?

Europa's potential?

PLAY VIDEO ►►► The European Tree carries many different types of fruit

Our world is facing many fundamental problems that exceed the capacity of individual countries to solve them. If we do not deal very quickly with these problems in a large-scale collective human effort, global society or even the planet itself may not reach the end of this century, at least not in a healthy way. In fact, a considerable part of the human and animal population, and disturbing portions of the Earth have already reached that point and do nothing but fight for their mere survival. The situation is becoming increasingly unstable and unsustainable.
