Venue information

European Parliament Office

The Lobbying procedure will take place in the most fitting of all places; the European Parliament Office in Athens. Any citizen who needs to contact the representatives of Greece to the European Parliament or needs information about the EP can visit the EP office. In 1974 the building became officially listed, which means that it cannot be demolished or altered without special permission.

The European Parliament is half of the EU’s legislative authority (jointly with the Council). It amends and adopts EU legislation and the budget. The members of the European Parliament get elected every 5 years by the EU citizens. There are currently 751 MEPs.
