The story of

Getting things out of the Brussels bubble, co-operating to make the EU more transparent, informing citizens and a wider public - all this is discussed here on this blog and elsewhere, while others - like - are actually doing something.

The initiative has now produced a 20 minutes video titled "Fields of Gold" to talk about how this incredible project-network has evolved, how they work, and what they have achieved.

If you have these 20 minutes (you should have them!), take your time to watch the film, because it tells a lot about how we could change the political system of the EU if we were able to get more things like this one done:

Fields of Gold: Lifting the Veil on Europe's Farm Subsidies from on Vimeo.

And if you don't have the time to watch the video, go to their website, go to or follow a whole lot more on which brings together the joint efforts of the many to make the EU budget more transparent.

Thanks for that!!

It's a fair cop - 20 minutes is a bit long. We're going to do short-but-sweet version too, fit for the attention span of the Youtube generation. It is always harder to be brief, as Mark Twain once said 'If I'd had more time I'd have written you a shorter letter'.

I don't find them too long, actually. I find 20 minutes much more convenient than the 10 minutes on Youtube.

But I understand that it will probably reach out to more people in a shorter version.

Good work in any case!
