Europe Day 2014: EU labyrinth comes to Serbia



The Local Democracy Agency in Subotica, in collaboration with the European House Hungary, and thanks to the support of the Provincial Secretariat of Youth and Sport of Vojvodina and the local governments, organized some public events for the Europe Day in the municipalities of Kanjiza and Subotica.

***

Respectively on the 8th and on the 9th of May, the main city squares of Kanjiza  and Subotica became "home for a day" to a 100 square meters labyrinth installation. Hundreds of citizens attended the events and participated to the exploration of the setting.

Within the labyrinth, people were asked to answer 10 questions regarding the European Union, with the view to both examining their knowledge and contributing to a further learning and interest. Once the labyrinth "exploration" was successfully completed, people had the chance to receive a symbolic EU Passport and promotion and information material regarding several topics connected to the European Union, from working and studying opportunities to general descriptions of its history and institutions.

The event was pleasantly attended by a large number of young people coming from the local schools in both the municipalities. This, while showing the contemporary relevance of the topic, represents a solid proof of the attractive power that the EU can wield towards the younger generations.
