Event Description

“What does it mean to be a citizen of the European Union?”.


Being an EU citizen guarantees you a number of rights which are relevant to your daily life. It also offers you various channels you can use to make yourself heard in Europe. European legislation guarantees such fundamental principles as freedom, the right to vote, as well as such practical issues as compensation for flight delays or lower phone tariffs when using your mobile phone abroad. The EU wants you to be aware of and to make full use of the rights you have as a European citizen every day.
This exhibition was originally produced by the European Commission Representation in Spain via the Regional Office in Barcelona and is being showcased in the several Europe Direct Information Centres around Ireland.
