Information Event to mark The European Year of Citizens 2013

The Europe Direct Information Centre – Outer Hebrides, hosted by the Comhairle, is supporting an information event today (Tuesday July 16th) at 2pm with NHS Western Isles, in the Western Isles Hospital foyer.

The information event, which relates to the European Year of Citizens 2013 (EYC 2013), aims to inform local people about their rights as EU citizens in respect of health care, travel and wider EU rights.

In addition to accessing information on your rights as an EU citizen, you can use the opportunity to provide feedback on how you think the EU should look in the future. 

With 500 million EU residents benefiting from these rights each year, this opportunity to engage is an important part of your EU citizenship.

The rights of EU citizens are enshrined in the Treaty on European Union and complement national rights.

Please come along and visit us to find out more, access relevant information, provide feedback, and maybe take away some EU freebies.
