• The future of Europe - Have your say!

    Citizens in border regions often experience very concretely in their everyday lives what Europe and the increasing integration of the European Union mean. The resulting opportunities but also challenges are particularly perceived here. The aim of the TEIN4citizens project is therefore to collect the ideas and opinions of citizens from border regions for the future development of Europe.

    All surveys are now online!

    What does it mean to be an EU citizen?

    Access to cross-border labour markets, protection of personal data, rights of minorities, women in politics, access to health care and EU foreign policy – What will be important for you in Europe in the future? What does it mean to be an EU citizen? Which rights should be protected, and by whom? Answer the short survey and tell us what you think!


    This survey is based on the results of the first TEIN4citizens conference, which took place on 11.03.2019 on the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland. The TEIN4Citizens project is co-financed by the Europe for Citizens programme.
