Romania Celebrates the Europe Day


In order to celebrate the Europe Day, in the context of the upcoming elections for the European Parliament, which will be held on May 25 in Romania, the Information Office of the European Parliament in Romania, jointly with the Infoeuropa Centre of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs invite Romanian citizens to attend, on May 9, between 3.00 PM and 7.00 PM, at 88, Calea Victoriei Avenue (the square in front of the Central University Library) a public event during which they can learn thorough information about the European Parliament. Romanian citizens are invited to express, for the first time, in an artistic manner, their ideas and expectations regarding the future legislature of the European Parliament and those who represent them in the European Parliament, by participating in the creation of a large-scale street exhibition.
Those interested in the event are awaited with surprise prizes, which they can receive if they participate in the actions that will be organised on this occasion, among which a central position will be held by the contest named “It’s time for the new Europe you want!” Participants in this contest will directly contribute to developing the largest exhibition of graphically illustrated ideas that will reflect their vision about the future of the European Union, telling us how they see Europe and what are their expectations in relation to 5 main topics: Jobs; the Budget of the EU; the Quality of life; Economic growth; EU in the world.
Several young graphic artists will plastically illustrate these ideas and will include them in an open exhibition of street art. The graphical illustrations will be photographed and posted on the Facebook page of the Office, www.facebook.com/EPIO.Romania, where they can be voted with ‘likes’ on 10-16 May 2014 by all those interested in supporting the ideas that participate in the contest. The authors of top 3 most voted ideas transposed graphically will be rewarded with a visit to the European Parliament in Brussels.
Visitors can obtain information at the two desks of the Infoeuropa Centre and the European Parliament Information Office, they will be invited to attend quiz contests and will be able to convey their ideas to the future Romanian deputies in the European Parliament via a symbolic ballot box that will be transmitted to the next legislature of the European Parliament.
