EU Open Doors Day

12:11 14/05/2014

EU Institutions hold an open-house this Saturday May 17th, 2014

The EU’s Open Doors Day this Saturday kills two birds with one stone. Conveniently scheduled two weeks in advance of the European Parliament elections on 25 May, the annual open-house event is at once an opportunity for the EU’s various institutions to familiarise the public with the workings of an admittedly complex administrative machine and to emphasise the importance of citizen participation in the forthcoming elections. The European Parliament, Council and Commission all welcome visitors with an entire day’s worth of events, tours, discussions, film screenings and more. As the Greek presidency of the Council draws to a close next month, Hellenic culture is celebrated with a photography exhibition and a dance performance.

17 May, from 10.00, European Quarter, Brussels
