Europe 2020 - civic vision: all the links related to the events in Brussels and Paris

In April 2010, the team of the project "Interacting with the European Parliament" organized a series of public events in Brussels and in Paris in order to promote the book "Europe 2020 - Civic vision", which represents a summary of this two year-long communication campaign.

Europe Gateway is summarizing for its readers the basic links of publications - videos, audios, picture galleries, texts, thematic radiobroadcasts, etc. - from the public events in Brussels and in Paris.
