We are not sexy and we know it... BUT...

Location Track 4, Salle 242 - Date Tue, 15 Mar 2016 - Time 10:00 ~ 10:40

Nous ne sommes pas sexy et nous le savons… MAIS…

Daniel Cohn-Bendit (Europe 1, France/Germany), Ahinara Bascuñana (European Parliament, Spain)

Let's admit it: EU related information is not the sexiest thing. The EU is abstract and complex. Prove of this is that most of the citizens cannot even tell the difference between the European Parliament, Commission and Council. However not being sexy doesn't mean not being fundamental. Why? Because 70 % of national legislation has its origin at the EU level. We cannot have a democratic EU without citizens well informed. But good news, media are not alone. There are some sexy resources to make reporting a lot easier. And for free… Daniel Cohn-Bendit is a Franco-German political and media figure, well-known for being an icon of the 1968 May-Revolution. Member of the European Parliament for 20 years, Cohn-Bendit is now retired from politics but very active in the media and social scene. He presents the daily section 'Humeur du jour' on French radio ‘Europe 1'. This session is sponsored and produced by the European Parliament
