The year 2015 will be the European Year for Development. Every year since 1983 – when the focus topic was small business and the craft industry – the European Union (EU) has chosen a theme that gains high publicity and focus. The aim of the European years is to raise awareness about the issue, organise cross-border events and actions, and to bring the specific topic closer to European citizens. Generating debate and dialogue on the topic across borders, on international, national and local levels is often the main goal.
