The heart of Palermo will be transformed into a large stage to host the “Eurocircus” event. Many interactive exhibitions, workshops for children, the general public and theatrical performances will take place. There will also be several meetings and debates to reinforce the notion of European citizenship among citizens.
The different themes that will be discussed during the meetings are:
1) Europe, the European Union: its history and founding fathers;
2) The structure and functions of the European Institutions and citizens’ rights;
3) The impact of EU decisions on citizens’ life; 4) EU Member States, EU politics and EU international relations.
On 30 and 31 March 2007, Eurocircus will take place in Palermo. Eurocircus is part of the events on “Your Province in Europe” developed by the Regional Province of Palermo to involve the general public in areas that are influencing more and more people’s lives.
Eurocircus includes exhibitions on the history of the European Union, the EU institutions, European languages, EuroGames, the Europe of meals and a Europe of Children.
