Don't think this made it on to the GreenYes list, but if it didn't would you
mind posting as I can't currently post to this list. I've completed the
short questionaire and it took about half an hour. Well worth it to help
continue to foster sustainability policies in the EU.

Cheers,

> Other languages are available too.

> Please fill at least the short version of the questionnaire. And consider
this:
> receiving 10,000 answers could represent a good input for a public
> consultation. This means one contribution per 600,000 world inhabitants.
> Therefore, if you choose to be among the 10,000, you will represent more
> people than most mayors of even a large city. Play big and influence
Europe!

> Make your opinion count and invite others, too, to participate.
