No bottles with water in Denmark - level 3, A12
Europe has a new leader. It is Denmark. All 27 countries must take leadership and they change every 6 months. With the financial crisis in Europe, Denmark wants to show Europe how to save money. They want to save money on everything. For example, politicians won’t get bottles with mineral water at their meetings. They will get only tap water which is free. There won’t be so many presents for politicians. Politicians will use public transport instead of cars.
All costs will be reduced to 35 million euros, which is not much, compared to what countries of similar size spent when they took the leadership. For example, Hungary spent 88 million, The Czech Republic 136 million euros.
