Building Europe with Local Councillors

On Monday 24 April, Daniel Borg and Jesmond Buttigieg participated in the activity ‘Building Europe with Local Councillors’ organised by the European Commission Representation in Malta.  The aim of this project is to build a network of locally elected politicians, creating an alliance to better communicate the European Union.  Local councilors from both Malta and Gozo were present for the event. Honorable Alison Zerafa Civelli, Parliamentary Secretary for Local Government, also addressed those present.  The main speaker was Bruno Giordiani, Head of Unit, COMM C4.  His intervention was followed by presentations from the European Documentation Centre (University of Malta), and from each of the three EUROPE DIRECT centres. 

Daniel Borg delivered a presentation on EUROPE DIRECT Gozo and its role within the Gozitan Community.  He explained how the primary aim of the centre should be to communicate the European Union through concrete actions and initiatives within the community.
