eu-LISA Celebrates Europe Day 2021

Since 2014 eu-LISA has been actively participating in the Europe Day celebrations. This year, just like in 2020, we have moved online, and have prepared a series of digital widgets to mark the occasion, including an interactive quiz and a brief video statement from our Executive Director.

Stay tuned and keep an eye out on our social media channels (Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube).

An online interactive quiz will challenge you to test your knowledge on topics regarding how the Schengen Area and the European Union work, and how eu-LISA does its part in ensuring free movement and safe travel across Europe.

Between 7 and 9 May, the Agency will also be taking part in the “My Europe - walk through Europe and learn interesting facts!” orienteering game, set in Estonia. Users will have to complete almost 30 checkpoints displayed on the virtual map and collect points by answering mutiple-choice style questions regarding all EU Member States and the EU as a whole. eu-LISA has its own dedicated question in the orienteering game which is available in Estonian, Russian and English.

Over the years, we have given out thousands of eu-LISA leaflets, gadgets and other give-aways, engaged countless citizens, with over 10,000 estimated visitors to our stand in Tallinn's Freedom square.

eu-LISA also contributes and takes part each year in the EU Institutions' joint social media campaigns for Europe Day, relaying key messages on our website and social media channels, to promote the EU Agencies' joint efforts in serving EU citizens.

Here is a look back at the past seven years. Happy Europe Day everyone!
