Do you know how much funding the EU has contributed to projects in your local community? If you do, then you are in a minority. Not many European citizens are aware of the extent to which the EU finances regional projects that affect their lives and communities. This is perhaps illustrated only too well by the recent Brexit. Britain voted Leave and perhaps — dare I say it — this is a much-needed wake-up call. It’s a chance for the EU to step up its game and ensure that European citizens in other countries are more aware of what it does for them.
