  • 1. European union By Matt
  • 2. Best views in Europe
  • 3. The European Union is a group of countries whose governments work together. It's a bit like a club. To join you have to agree to follow the rules and in return you get certain benefits. Each country has to pay money to be a member. They mostly do this through taxes. The EU uses the money to change the way people live and do business in Europe. Countries join because they think that they will benefit from the changes the EU makes.

  • 5. What does the EU do
    • A lot of what the EU does is about bringing people in Europe closer together. It tries to make it easier for Europeans to buy and sell things to each other. This is done by changing the rules that control trade.
    • Click here for a list of the Union's aims
    • It is also getting rid of controls that stop people from EU countries moving around freely inside the Union.
    • The changes have not always been popular in the UK.
    • The EU backs things like exchange visits that help ordinary Europeans to understand what they all have in common.
    • But there are some who think that the EU does too much, mainly if it tries to create one rule for everyone in Europe and then makes people obey it even if they dislike that rule.
  • 6. WHEN DID THE EU START?
    • It started in 1957 by Belgium
  • 7. Luxemburg
