Putting the initiative into perspective
In this section we want to help you to put our goals into perspective. To understand Goal 1 it will be helpful to get a better idea of what the EU Budget looks like today. In order to understand Goal 2 better it is helpful to learn more about the different exchange programmes financed from the EU Budget today. And Goal 3 can only be fully understood if one knows what an Open Method of Coordination is and how it works.
To understand why 20 billion Euros yearly for exchange programmes is asking a lot, but at the same time not too much, it helps to know the great outlines of today's budget.

In Goal 3 we ask for the creation of an Open Method of Coordination. But what is an OMC and how will it help building a united Europe at grass-roots level? We explain here.
