So the app is available only to EU members, +Edit Lissi ?  How nice and exclusive.  Disgraceful bit, then, letting the UK citizens decide who will govern them?

In 2014, we agreed – together as the EU - to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% by 2030. Today we are presenting concrete ways how to achieve this goal, including fair, flexible and realistic binding targets for Member States for the period 2021 – 2030.

If there's any law experts out there, do I get a degree from school of life before I am six feet under? I'm older than three years? Or does the E.U. accept #NotMadeUpUniversity ? This is my chance!

Hello +Paul Gray
In line with the principle of 'no negotiation without notification', the task of the Chief Negotiator in the coming months will be to prepare the ground internally for the work ahead. Once the Article 50 process is triggered, he will take the necessary contacts with the UK authorities and all other EU and Member State interlocutors.

Best, the Social Media Team

How to re-use the waste from wine production?
A project in #Croatia is developing techniques to efficiently extract and process the organic waste from wine production and re-use it as raw material or semi-finished product for functional food production, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and other purposes. The project is supported by EU Cohesion Funds and is now in the final phase of the Regiostars awards for good practices in regional development. See all projects: http://ec.europa.eu/regional_policy/en/regio-stars-awards?utm_campaign=engagor&utm_content=engagor_Mzg0MjU3OA%3D%3D&utm_medium=social&utm_source=googleplus

€500 million solidarity package for #farmers
"The primary goal is to see a rise in prices for the men and women who get up at 6am to #milk their cows" said Commissioner Phil Hogan, in charge of Agriculture during the #Agriculture Council yesterday.

In response to the continued market downturn, and to the concerns strongly relayed by ministers, we put forward a third package of support measures worth €500 million addressed mainly at the dairy sector, but also at the livestock sector. These measures are aimed at tackling the crisis by stabilising production and indirectly prices, and providing liquidity to farmers. €150 million will be distributed through an EU-wide measure to those farmers who voluntarily decide to reduce their dairy deliveries, thereby helping the market restore the balance between demand and supply. Moreover, €350million will be rapidly made available through national financial envelopes to help producers face cash-flow problems. This aid will be conditional on the respect of certain commitments. Specific attention will be dedicated to small farmers. Member states will have maximum flexibility in the use of these funds to support vulnerable livestock sectors, and also be able to provide national top-ups up to 100%.

Introduction
The Commission is independent of national governments. Its job is to represent and uphold the interests of the EU as a whole. It is headed by 28 Commissioners, 1 per country.

Description
The European Commission (EC) is the 'engine room' of the EU. It is one of 3 main EU institutions; the other two are the European Parliament (EP) and the Council (of the European Union).

The Commission prepares legislation for adoption by the Council (representing the member countries) and the Parliament (representing the citizens).

It administers the budget and the policy programmes (Agriculture, Fisheries, Research etc.) in cooperation with authorities in the member countries. The EC also services the 27 EU Commissioners.

Visit http://www.europa.eu/ if you want to learn more about the EU, or call the free service number 00 800 6789 10 11 from anywhere in the EU, they speak all 24 official languages.
