13 About EU Read Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament "As a former bookseller, I have a passion for reading and not a single day goes by that I don t grab a book. In Europe, more than 73 million people are illiterate an alarmingly large number. In order to address this educational and social problem we need to promote literacy in Europe and familiarize all age groups with reading. That s why I appreciate the various national initiatives as well as the European network EURead, which aim at getting people in Europe enthusiastic about reading." 13

14 Getting people in Europe enthusiastic about reading by... Best practice programmes to be shared and implemented in every European country e. g. Bookstart Awareness campaigns to be raised up to a European level e. g. Europe-wide reading aloud events Building capacity Shaping European programmes in each country Supporting existing organizations Strengthening and initiating programmes Strengthening ties to other networks 14
