Kroatien

Känner du till att EU ser till att människor kan arbeta över nationsgränserna tillsammans och skydda dig och miljontals andra medborgare? Oavsett om de förbereder sig på att ila till platsen för en katastrof som oljade blixtar, forskar efter botemedlet mot en mystisk sjukdom eller anstränger sig för att göra ditt område lite mer naturskönt gör dessa vardagshjältar Europa till en bättre plats att bo på.  

De skyddar ditt hem, dina vänner, din familj och ditt jobb, samordnade av EU. Detta är deras berättelser.
