Europa: Union or Community?

PLAY VIDEO ►►► Europa: union or community

The term European Union came into existence with the treaty of Maastricht in 1992. Before that, the commonly used name was European Community. Is there a difference?

Do you like the idea of living in a "Union" or would you prefer the former idea of a "Community"? What associations do you have with each of these two terms?

Do you know Europa as community of people?

PLAY VIDEO ►►► europa-comunidad

One thing is the EU as a political entity, that you may like more or less, or not like at all.

But how about Europa in a non-political sense, in fact, as a community? Our continent enjoys a rich diversity of peoples, cultures and languages. How well do you know the community of people within this political union you are living in?

To start with, how much interaction do you have with other europeans in your daily life?
and then:

  • Which European countries have you ever visited?
  • Have you ever lived, worked and/or studied in any of them? (say, a year or more)
  • From our rich offer in languages which one(s) do you speak?
  • And, very important, from which countries do you have friends or maybe even (had) a love?

It may seem a long list, but you can skip your own country and the countries that don't apply.
(the countries are subdivided in blocks of decreasing EU commitment (open borders, use of Euro), within that ordered by year of entry and then alphabetically - source 1, source 2)

Do you understand the European Union?

PLAY VIDEO ►►► How does the EU work?

In theory, the European Union is an entity that exists for the good of its citizens. Therefore it seems obvious that, to begin with, EU inhabitants should actually understand it: knowing how it works, what advantages it offers or how they can actively participate to improve it, amongst other.

How well do you feel you understand the European Union?
There are some topics in the newspapers and on tv-news we receive information about every day. How do you rate their importance and how would information about the EU (news or how it works) compare to that?

A fresh look at Europa?

PLAY VIDEO ►►► A fresh look at Europa

As soon as it seemed possible to take peace for granted in Europa, attention has been increasingly focused on industry and economy, as the next step in the European Dream: prosperity. To a certain extent this was reached, but in just a few decades it seems to have gone out of control. From a means at the service of prosperity for the citizens, the economy (now the "financial markets") seems to have become an objective and dominant in society.

Europa's potential?

PLAY VIDEO ►►► The European Tree carries many different types of fruit

Our world is facing many fundamental problems that exceed the capacity of individual countries to solve them. If we do not deal very quickly with these problems in a large-scale collective human effort, global society or even the planet itself may not reach the end of this century, at least not in a healthy way. In fact, a considerable part of the human and animal population, and disturbing portions of the Earth have already reached that point and do nothing but fight for their mere survival. The situation is becoming increasingly unstable and unsustainable.
