EU FOR CITIZENS

European citizens can obtain information about the European Union and its current developments from their governments. The Communication Office began providing this information and raising awareness of EU affairs even before Slovenia’s accession to the EU.
  

Before the accession, we provided information via Europhone, the first governmental contact number available to citizens, which later evolved into the Single Contact Centre. Besides providing answers via telephone, we also offered information and answers via the evropa.gov.si website, email and so-called europostcards, organised free presentations across Slovenia, and oversaw the distribution of free publications. The access to information was also enabled by the Eurobus, a mobile library and information office focused on the EU, which travelled around Slovenia and was even able to reach remote areas. 

 

After Slovenia’s accession to the EU, the provision of information on individual topics was taken on by competent ministries and government offices. Today the Government Communication Office provides the information on EU affairs in several ways:

   
- via the government portal, with information about life in the European Union;
- through news updates;
- through detailed presentations and addressing of important topics;
- by the announcement of events with EU-related content;
- by cooperation with NGOs; and
- through communication campaigns for major projects.
