What the citizens of Europe care about

As the final part of my little research tour across Europe, I’m at the agenda-setting event of the European Citizens’ Consultations in Brussels today.

Here’s the preliminary list of 25 issues which the participants — a randomly selected sample of 200 citizens from all 25 member states of the European Union — care about:

  • Agriculture and food
  • Culture and heritage
  • Diversity
  • Economy
  • Education and study
  • Energy
  • Environment
  • The Euro
  • Free Movement of Persons
  • Sports
  • Global role
  • Social welfare
  • Immigration
  • Institutions
  • Integration and Enlargement
  • Jobs
  • Family
  • Outside borders
  • Peace and security
  • Policy-making and citizen communication
  • Regulation
  • Science
  • Solidarity and equality
  • Transport
  • Values

Very interesting to watch how the final agenda will take shape.
