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).Open full content >>>
The opinion of the Europeans on the European Union, in the way it works now, is divided. Basically there are three points of view: stay the same, change or exit.
At first glance, which statement best reflects your position right now?
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.Open full content >>>
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?
Should human values also be thaught and in some way be measured at school?

European Elections, 23 - 26 May.
You cannot solve problems at the same level that created them.
Einstein was wise. You can be to, letting them hear your voice (again).
All those in Europa who defend Nature, Climate and Future, especially young people, now have an exceptional opportunity to take one step more beyond manifesting in streets and spread awareness. You have the chance to let them hear your voice again and this time to bring about real political change towards the kind of society you were manifesting for. Don't miss this chance!Open full content >>>
An essential step to unlock the true potential of Europe and the Europeans is an EU more directed from the citizens up (bottom-up), than from the politicians down (top-down). The common sense, creativity and inspiration of the collective European citizens themselves can bring very valid solutions, improving or even exceeding those of the politicians. If citizens can be more participatory in our continental community we can, as a whole, really be involved in the change we want to see.Open full content >>>
