Next month, a new video will be released about “Green Infrastructure”, a strategically planned network of high-quality green spaces and environmental features. With around 80% of the EU’s population now living in towns or cities, taking care of the green infrastructure that breathes life into urban and rural habitats has never been more important. Achieving thriving biodiversity is vital to addressing numerous challenges, from climate change adaptation to long-term economic stability.
There are around 10 million mobile citizens in Europe, which represents about 2% of the population. These are people of a different nationality to the country in which they live or work. To make life easier for those EU citizens who wish to receive their unemployment benefits, child care benefits or pension in a country other than the one they have worked and lived in, a new updated EU regulation, 883/2004, will come into force in 2010.
With examples from France, Estonia/Finland, this video gives examples of how this new EU regulation will be helpful for ordinary citizens.
