Maria and Arthur are two characters born shortly after Malta’s membership in the EU. For them, being part of the European Union, is a natural part of their lives. They consider themselves as both Maltese and European citizens and dream that one day they will work or study in another European country. They also take an active interest in discovering, learning but also sharing knowledge about the changes that such membership brought to our lives.
Indeed, a lot has changed in the past sixteen years, including our currency, the type of jobs that we attract to our shores, the way we care more about environment, and even how we relate with the outside world. Many Maltese have found great employment opportunities around Europe, while many Europeans have decided to make Malta their home.
Malta is still a relatively young country, and EU membership meant a new phase in its development. Maria and Arthur will be taking us on a trip around the islands to take us through projects in Malta that have been partly created thanks to EU funds, sharing information on the difference such projects make to our daily lives.
