The European Commission is the EU's executive body and represents the interests of Europe as a whole. Our programme is supported by the Europe for Citizens Programme of the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Agency Executive Agency (EACEA). The aim of this programme is to bring Europe closer to its citizens and to enable them to participate fully in the European construction. Through this programme, citizens have the opportunity to be involved in transnational exchanges and cooperation activities, contributing to developing a sense of belonging to common European ideals and encouraging the process of European integration.

The Ministry supports international and European programmes that promote the values of the French government.
