Since 2016 Euri has focused his work on designing and implementing projects at European level. He has been the project coordinator of "A Tale of Two Futures", "Environmental Learning Illustrated", "Breakthrough for Resilience: People, Places, and Communities" and "Sustainability, Heritage, Health".

"I rarely fly for holidays, preferring to spend them near home. For the past 5 years, I have spent my summer holidays walking the "St James Way" a pilgrimage route that runs for 500 miles from the French border to the city of Santiago in North-west Spain. I have sometimes walked for a month without taking any motor transportation, but in the end, I was sorry it was not 500 miles more!
