According to the motto “How can Europe become more democratic?” pedestrians at Ku’damm and Hackischer Markt were encouraged to vote on proposals for a more active and participatory democracy at the European level. The action aroused great interest among Berlin citizens as well as international guests and led to lively discussions on Europe.
On the occasion of the Europe Day, Europa-Union Deutschland traditionally goes public with many different actions: throughout Germany, the regional sections warmly invite to numerous events and activities seeking dialogue and exchange with the citizens.
In addition to info booths and discussion forums, committed Europeans showed a great deal of creativity and innovative actions in order to attract public interest for European topics. The street polls on banners were organized for the first time on the initiative of the EUD Secretary-General Christian Moos.
