On Thursday April 4th I met with Gundi Gadesmann who is the Media and External Relations Officer at the European Ombudsman. We talked a bit and I asked her to tell me what the European Ombudsman actually does. Here is what she told me:
The event takes place on 23 April 2013, 09:30-12:30 followed by a reception Room 2Q2 (József Antall Building), European Parliament, Brussels
Live stream is provided via: http://www.ombudsman.europa.eu/en/home.faces Twitter hashtag #eyc2013eo
I will be there for you to tweet (@Citizen_e) about the event and those of you who are in Brussels should come and ask questions, the registration can be done here: http://www.ombudsman.europa.eu/shortcuts/document.faces/en/49627/pdf.bookmark download the pdf, fill in your details and send it via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The registration has to be done in this way because the event takes place in the European Parliament, for the security of everyone there has to be a prior registration of every participant.
If you can not attend, because you are living outside of Brussels, but you want to interact and know what everyone is talking about you can follow the event in 22 languages via live stream here:
