Get active

We are Europeans – what does this mean and why should we actively stand up for Europe and European values. Since 1957, the European Union has achieved great things:

  • After a long history of conflicts and wars, we live on a peaceful continent.
  • Freedom for its citizens to live, study or work anywhere in the EU
  • The world’s biggest single market. In this way, we can promote growth, competitiveness and jobs.
  • Aid and development assistance for millions of people worldwide
