M 01.01 Decision Game

You will find statements about (alleged) EU directives below. Are these statements correct or fudged? Decide spontaneously if a statement is correct or wrong.

Umfrage
Avoiding a bad atmosphere.

Students cycling to school should not fall ill on the way. This is why the EU takes care of air quality in cities.





Umfrage
Enabling everyone to see daylight.

School’s syllabi are subject to European quality assurance to ensure that all European citizens receive comparable education.





Umfrage
The same for everyone.

Job starters, too, should be able to make a living. This is why the EU determined minimum wages employers have to pay.





Umfrage
Knowing what they are made of.

Buying healthy food should not be a challenge. That is the reason why misleading or comparative advertising is forbidden across the EU. If it says on a yogurt pot „low-fat“, there has to be yogurt in that pot which is actually low fat.





Umfrage
Age-appropriate gambling.

Teenagers and their parents should know if a computer game is appropriate for a certain age or not. Thus, there are age ratings on games across the EU.





Umfrage
Hands off!

Alcohol cannot be sold to people underage. People under 18 years of age are required to keep their hands off the booze.





Umfrage
Standardised.

The principle of Fairness also applies to chicken across the EU: For reasons of animal welfare, they have to have a minimum of 4 square meters per hen when kept in free range husbandry.





Umfrage
Going through customs?

No matter if you order shoes from Milano or a bike from Poland – you do not have to pay customs duties across the EU.





Umfrage
Marriage equality – everywhere.

Marriages of same-sex couples and marriages of opposite-sex couples are recognised as equal everywhere across the EU.





Umfrage
Get over there.

European citizens can travel freely across the EU. If you want to cross an internal frontier within the EU, you can do so without having your passport checked in most instances.





Umfrage
Please don’t go overboard!

The EU monitors the member states’ national debts. In case the national debt is in excess of the limit, the EU can impose sanctions against that member state.





Umfrage
A common EU army.

The European Military is subdivided according to national sections. However, they are all part of the European defensive alliance and are therefore subject to the EU.





Umfrage
Child care supply.

The EU determines that all children are legally entitled to be cared for in nurseries. This entitlement applies when the child turns one.





Umfrage
Your Decision

According to an EU directive, teenagers over 14 are allowed to decide for themselves whether they want to practise a religion or not.





Umfrage
Safe summer fun.

An EU directive determines that the quality of public bathing water needs to be checked.





Umfrage
Don’t produce waste!

The EU seeks to reduce the amount of plastic waste, its citizens produce. This is why some single-use products will be banned from 2021 onwards.
