Development Cooperation Handbook/The video resources linked to this handbook/The Documentary Story/At Brussels
We had completed the four planned locations in the developing countries, where we collected stories from the projects “on the ground”. But before closing the production cycle I felt the need of showing “where the money comes from” and put faces to the donors. So we went to Brussels.
After hearing a lot of complains about “EU bureaucracy” I expected that it would not have been easy to get access to the powerhouse and talk to the powerful ones. But I was wrong. Not only we could hold interviews to EuropeAid spokesperson, but also to the Commissioner himself. At the EU parliament was even better and we could have 5 nice long interviews to Parliamentarians.
We met also persons working in the Association of European NGOs working in the international Development Cooperation sector.
Brussels had shown us her smiling face.
