The EU budget in 2009

On FollowTheMoney.eu I have published a first article with some thoughts about the main developments with regards to the EU budget in 2009. This article looks at the budget review, the possible denial or delay of discharge for the Council and the provision of new transparency data.

In a second article to be published later this week by now I will speculate on the impact of the European elections on budgetary policy in the European Parliament and the Commission – including my guess for the next Budget Commissioner.

    Hi Jan,

    On February 12, more than 175 cities (also Brussels) all over the world will host Twestival, a festival to raise awareness and donations for clean water.

    All donations from parties in +175 cities will proceed to the the nonprofit charity:water.
    How is this possible and what does Twestival mean? Twestival is a combination of Twitter+festival. Twitter is the popular microblogging service, and we are using Twitter to organize, disseminate and discuss how to use social media for social change.
    Come and join us on Le Botanique on February 12, have fun, meet new people and make water cleaner at the same time! Pretty good deal, isn’t it?
