The National Council for Voluntary Organisations along with Community Service Volunteers and The Open University in partnership with the European Parliament are running the 'Europe: what does it mean for you?' project. As part of this initiative, the team organised a dialogue with MEPs and a book launch with professors and civil society organisations to discuss citizenship rights within the EU. The event (held on 19 September 2013) was organised as part of the European Year of Citizens 2013.
