Every year in May the European Institutions celebrate the anniversary of the founding of the European Union by organising informative and entertaining activities throughout Europe. This year eu-LISA will participate at Europe Day events not only in Tallinn but also in Strasbourg and Brussels to provide additional visibility to the work of the Agency and increase general awareness.
In Tallinn, on 7 May, the staff of the Agency will deliver information materials, carry out quizzes on eu-LISA in Estonian and contribute to the special "Europe Day passport game" in the EU House. The game introduces EU Member States as well as EU Institutions and Bodies to people of different age groups in an infotaining manner.
In order to set the focus more directly on eu-LISA and the role the Agency plays to support European values, the Head of the General Coordination Unit Mailis PUKONEN will give an interview at the main stage of the festival in the city centre. This is where Europe-related discussions and musical entertainment will be carried out to mark the Day in a festive manner together with celebrities and public personalities who speak out on EU topics.
The interview with eu-LISA's Executive Director Krum GARKOV, published in the special Europe Day edition of the magazine "Eurokratt", disseminated broadly both on and offline, is eu-LISA's direct contribution to Europe Day visibility and awareness raising actions.
In Strasbourg eu-LISA staff will be delivering information and organising quizzes in French at the European Parliament Open Doors Day.
In Brussels eu-LISA will be out to meet the public on 28 May at the European Commission Open Doors Day.
