What we are going to talk about

Europe is known for its famous cities like Paris or Rome. On the other hand there are rural areas like Alentejo and Transylvania. Having different regions with different economies and different needs in a united Europe presents us with great challenges.

To correct these imbalances the EU has launched several funds to strengthen economic and social cohesion, such as the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

What are these funds about and where does the money go? Have these funds had any effect so far? Join us on our conversation with Pedro Marques, MEP S&D.

What is MeetEU?

We are a network of volunteers who participated in the European Parliament's #thistimeimvoting and now campaign. The high voter turnout in the European elections motivated us to stay involved. Why not connect with all these amazing people across Europe? That's why in November 2019 we set up a MeetEU pilot group with people from different European countries to meet on the free online platform Discord. In March 2020 we opened the MeetEU Discord server for all supporters, in April 2020 for the general public. The initial monthly discussions have now become one event per week. Great, the European exchange of ideas is picking up speed!
