What is an Europe Direct Information Centre?
Europe Direct is an information network designated by the European Commission to inform citizens about the EU. On the central website europa.eu all contact points can be found that provide citizens with information about European institutions, legislature and policy making. Next to tips and advise Europe Direct aims to enter into dialogue with citizens on themes that effect them.

In the Netherlands there are multiple local Europe Direct Centres, which all use their expertise to build a bridge between the EU and citizens. As Europe Direct Amsterdam, Netwerk Democratie will focus on innovative developments in the EU and the strengthening of European democracy.
