Šta je EU učinila za svoje građane
Pola veka blagostanja

... avionske karte u proteklih deset godina pojeftinile za 40 odsto, a telefoniranje za 80 odsto u proteklih 20 godina.

... uspela svojim građanima da obezbedi boljitak u gotovo svim aspektima života - od radnog prava i socijalne zaštite, to slobodnog i olakšanog putovanja i čistije životne sredine.

Turisti imaju puno zdravstveno osiguranje ukoliko im u bilo kojoj članici EU iznenada zatreba lekarska pomoć. Vozačka dozvola izdata u jednoj zemlji EU važi i u svim ostalim. ... Evropljani danas, pedeset godina posle potpisivanja sporazuma u Rimu, mogu da rade i žive gde god hoće u granicama EU. Tu mogućnost je iskoristilo čak 15 miliona Evropljana. Državljanin jedne članice EU koji živi u drugoj članici ima ista prava i socijalnu zaštitu kao svi ostali državljani te zemlje, a može čak i da se kandiduje na lokalnim izborima za Evropski parlament.

EU je uklonila sve barijere na polju konkurencije u vazdušnom saobraćaju krajem prošlog veka. Posledica - između 1992. i 2000. godine cene avionskih karata su pale za 40 odsto. Istovremeno, putnici imaju na raspolaganju mnogo više prevoznika i destinacija, dok je broj maršruta koje povezuju članice EU porastao za gotovo 50 odsto. Izgrađeni su graditeljski giganti poput mosta Oresund između Kopenhagena i Malmea, tunel ispod Lamanša, a planira se i prokop tunela ispod Gibraltara koji bi povezao Evropu sa Afrikom.

EU se izborila za čistiji vazduh, čistije reke i plaže. Tako je Direktiva o preradi otpadnih voda u gradskoj sredini dovela do dramatičnog poboljšanja kvaliteta vode u rekama u proteklih 30 godina, što je, između ostalog, doprinelo povratku vidri na britansko selo. Drugi zakoni su znatno smanjili problem kiselih kiša - Velika Britanija, koja je nekad važila za „evropsku aljkavušu“, smanjila je emisiju sumpora za čitavih 73 odsto između 1990. i 2002. Iako pre 30 godina većina britanskih plaža nije zadovoljavala Direktivu o čistoći vode za kupanje, danas 98 plaža može da se pohvali prelaznom ocenom.

50 reasons to love the European Union
