New information campaign about Schengen in the Czech Republic

'Free way to Europe' The Czech government will invest 25 million Czech crowns into a new campaign that will inform Czech public about joining the Schengen system on 1st January 2008. The government decided to launch the campaign after what a survey had revealed that only 51 per cent of Czech people knew about the existence of the Schengen agreement.

The campaign is symbolized by a logo of traffic lights having three green lights instead of red, orange and green. The logo represents the free way to Europe. The information campaign should increase the knowledge of Czech public about the Schengen system.

According to many Czech people travelling without border controls is the final part of joining the European Union. In connection with joining the Schengen system Czech people mostly fear of increase of illegal immigrants and security risks.
