Participation of Günther Oettinger in the debate on the Future of Europe, in Düsseldorf
On 8 May 2013, Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, was in Düsseldorf, Germany, to participate in a debate on the Future of Europe with more than 200 citizens and Members of the Parliament of North Rhine-Westphalia.
The discussion covered all aspects of life: Who ensures that local authorities comply with Europe-wide environmental-protection directives? How is the European Union supporting structural change in North Rhine-Westphalia? What incentives exist in the field of education and training?
The debate was organised in the framework of the 2013 European Year of Citizens.
