Promote awareness raising for EU Citizenship issues in the new member states through printed and electronic information material (distributed to relevant bodies as well as to the wide public), workshops (offered to special target groups), panel discussions (for the public) and live Radio/TV programs. The need for relevant, accurate, immediate and easy-to-access information is satisfied using an innovative communication tool, an automated call-answer centre (ACC).
Extending EU Citizenship to the Eastern End of Europe was funded by the EU Commission DG Justice, Freedom and Security. It was launched on Wednesday, January 25, 2006. The main goal of the project was to inform the public about their rights as EU citizens as well as about the rights of those who live in the EU and are not citizens. Information regarding EU citizenship and fundamental rights was made available through an automated interactive call center, specialized booklets, workshops, information days, panel discussions and radio and TV programs.
