Saint-Martin participated 7 and 8 last June at the seminar "Communicating Europe in the Regions and Europe of Regions" in Brussels.

This seminar, organized by the offices of the Representation of the European Commission in Paris and Marseille in partnership with Régions de France, was intended for the European and Regional Communications directorates. Saint-Martin, who as a reminder takes the presidency of the Conference of Presidents of the ORs in November, participated in these two days of work at the European Commission, with about forty participants from all over France.
Through exchanges with the European Union's policy and program managers, the objectives of this seminar were twofold: how to better promote Europe in the regions and the driving role of the regions in the construction of Europe, but also how to strengthen the sense of belonging to the Union and European citizenship in the run-up to the 26 May 2019 elections.
Ambitious objectives for a major subject that fits in a context of both balance sheet and future for the European Union, but also against the backdrop of Brexit and rising euro-sectarian populisms in member states.
Eurobarometers are talking: 27% of French people say they are poorly informed about the role and functioning of the European Union. As for the help of Europe in the Region, it passes almost unnoticed: according to a study carried out last year, it is indeed some 72% of the French who have simply never heard of projects co-financed on their territory .
Simplification, proximity: these two slogans will now be the common thread of the communication policy of the European authorities, which intend to start a closer and more dynamic relationship with their partners and to reinforce the responsibilities for communication on the use of funds, managing authorities.

In addition to traveling exhibitions, promotional campaigns such as #UEinmyregion or Road Trip Project and cultural events to promote Europe and its values, initiatives are proposed to restore a relationship of trust between the citizens of Europe. Union and its elites and institutions.

At a time when European issues are at the heart of the news, the Representation in France of the European Commission has for example launched the creation of a guide called Decoders of Europe, to unravel the misconceptions about the action of the European Union, and to enhance the value of its little-known action.
In the context of the ongoing debate on the future of the European Union at 27, launched by the publication of the Commission's White Paper 1er March 2017 and in parallel with the citizens' dialogues organized by the European Commission and the Member States, a 12's online quiz questions further expands the existing opportunities for expression to the citizens of the European Union. 30 000 questionnaires have been validated to date and the consultation continues until the European elections of 2019, on the website of the Commission and its French Representation. Our fellow citizens can thus make their voices heard on https://www.touteleurope.eu and https://ec.europa.eu/commission/consultation-future-europe.
