Hearts and minds for the EU – because Europe is up to all of us

“Hearts and minds for Europe”, a private on-line initiative launched by EU officials, wants to help to build bridges between the Brussels “EU village” and citizens all over Europe. It gives a voice to people in a wide variety of jobs in Brussels and to citizens living all over Europe, explaining what Europe means to them personally. Make sure you also visit our Facebook page!

“Hearts and Minds for Europe gives a flavour of what it really means to work at the heart of EU democracy,” states Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President of the European Commission in his interview. “The interviews, statements and messages from citizens all over Europe show that the European Union, its success and its failures, is not only the responsibility of those working in Brussels but that it is up to all of us!”

Europe is at stake and we are convinced that it is up to all of us to get up and vote and show responsibility for our #FutureofEurope.

Have your say, because Europe is our future. It is up to all of us!
