EUROPE NOW

We take you to the 28 EU member states for a series of exclusive reports and interviews with local MEPs. Produced in partnership with the European Parliament. Saturday at 12.10 pm.

Latest update : 2014-07-02

The Swedish model: An example for Europe?

Our reporters went to Gothenburg where the municipality has decided to cut down its staff's working hours to just six – while keeping them on full pay. And we ask Green MEP Bodil Ceballos why Sweden has sued the European Commission over its failure to ban chemicals believed to cause diseases such as cancer and diabetes: the so-called endocrine disruptors.
