Animate Europe 2019 “Europe+” is officially launched!

Animate Logo 2019 Europe +

[For German & French version see below]

What does the imminent Brexit, the ban on halogen lightbulbs, the difficulties to distribute refugees and the German emissions scandal have in common? They don’t exactly spark enthusiasm for the European Union.
