What Europe does for me

Do you know what the EU does in your region? Do you know which European Union policies are important in your daily life? Do you feel that the EU does many things but you can never say any specific action? The European Parliament has launched What Europe does for me, a ground-breaking website demonstrating the EU’s positive impact on individual citizens.


The website provides citizens around Europe with short, easily readable notes on how the EU has improved their lives. A quick and simple navigation by region, profession, leisure activity will help you to discover what it has done for you.


The notes provide a snapshot of EU action for citizens - based on interesting examples, with onward links to further information - rather than trying to list everything the EU has ever done. The website has been put together by the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS), in conjunction with the Communications and Translations services of the European Parliament.
