EU institutions are holding a series of events in the run-up to Europe Day on 9 May so that people across the EU and beyond can find out more about the EU and what it does.
Start the week by chatting with Katarina Barley and Othmar Karas, Parliament's Vice-Presidents responsible for communication, on Facebook and LinkedIn. You will be able to discover all about the Parliament and the Conference on the Future of Europe - an initiative to allow people to have their say on the future of the EU - throughout the week in interviews with executive board members, committee chairs and MEPs.
Check out the Europe Day portal to find out more about the Parliament, the European Commission and the other EU institutions, as well as all about the activities being organised across the EU and the world. Hover over a country on the portal’s interactive map to find out what is going on near you. Events include the annual Europe Day concert, which this year will be streamed live online from London this Sunday from 1pm CET.
Pay a virtual visit to the European Parliament, the Commission and the other EU institutions. The immersive space allows visitors to play online games, watch videos and test their knowledge of the EU in general, as well as on themes related to a green and digital Europe. With one click, users can take part in online debates on EU topics and explore online events.
Take a look at the multilingual Conference on the Future of Europe platform, where you can share your ideas on shaping the EU’s future. And don’t forget to join the official launch of the Conference screened live on 9 May from Strasbourg.
