The European Parliament institutions have launched ‘Europarltv’, their own online video channels, to present a regularly changing set of programmes based around the life of the Parliament. ‘Europarltv’ is split into four channels, each targeted at a different audience:
Your Parliament, aimed at those with a particular interest in politics at the EU level: informed citizens, industry groups, social partners, lobbyists, academics as well as those working in the EU institutions.
Your Voice, conceived for the general public and providing the possibility of featuring user-generated content.
Young Europe, aimed particularly at school-aged children, the European electorate of the future.
Parliament Live provides coverage of live events in the Parliament, notably debates in the plenary sessions, with a link to archives of previous sessions. Commitee sessions will be covered next year.
