“How does Europe affect our everyday lives? How does it impact our jobs, our families, our health care, our hobbies, our journeys, our security, our consumer choices and our social rights? And how is Europe present in our towns, cities and regions?

As European citizens, no matter where we live or how we make our living or spend our time, the EU has an impact on our daily lives.

In a one-page format, these notes are available for you to read, share or reuse. And if you want to dig deeper, have a look at our longer briefing papers on EU policies in focus.”
