The compilation with myhts, stereotypes and success stories has been finalised. It is quite huge. We hope that you will be surprised by some of the things you read and that maybe one or two myths will disappear from your minds. We are well aware that not everything is great in the EU – but it is much better than some always postulate and there are some wonderful success stories.
The research phase carried out in the framework of the MEGA project has brought some interesting things to light – on the one hand the partners have found some really incredible myths about the EU, but on the other hand they have also found things that the EU does for its citizens that they were not aware of to this extent.
Before the MEGA report with myths and success stories is published – it will be designed over the summer months – you can see at a glance what the EU is doing for its citizens here.
Currently, the partners of the MEGA project are collecting myths and stereotypes about the European Union. The EU is often blamed for things for which it is not even responsible. As European Union constantly faces different manifestations of Europhobia, unmasking EU myths becomes ever more important to keep the EU united. Media – and specifically social media – play a major role as an opinion-maker and the carrier of EU myth information to a broader audience.
