EurActiv Awards Winners

European Umbrella Infopoint

The initiative was created by the Economic Chamber of Austria, the Austrian Federal Chanclery, the Austrian Society for European Policy, and the Austrian Federation of Municipalities. On more than 300 occasion the Umbrella Initiative has delivered EU issues to citizens – during festivals and sports events. This direct contact enabled people to discuss their questions with EU experts – like during an electoral campaign. We think that this tool could become part of a new campaign explaining and discussing the effects of the Lisbon treaty.
