Things to do Whats On YOU’RE RIGHT Campaign – Escape the Room

YOU’RE RIGHT Campaign – Escape the Room

An impressive Escape the Room arrives in Nicosia for only two days, within the framework of the ‘YOU’RE RIGHT’ campaign (#yourEUright), which is being implemented by the Commission’s Directorate-General for Justice and Consumers is responsible for EU policy on justice, consumer rights and gender equality (DG Just). The Escape the Room, which will travel in ten countries across the EU, will make a stop at The Mall of Cyprus on Saturday, January 25 from 11:00 until 20:00 and on Sunday, January 26 from 11:00 until 19:00.

The public will have the opportunity to participate in the game for free, in groups of four, unravelling the “mystery” while learning about their consumer rights. During this unique experience, participants will be informed about their rights regarding travel, product safety, bank fees and transparency, online shopping, product warranty, truthful advertising and fair contracts. Due to the complexity of such topics, the European Commission chose to inform the public through the Escape Room activation in a simple and fun way with real-life everyday examples.

The ‘YOU’RE RIGHT’ campaign (#yourEUright), that was launched in Cyprus in the summer of 2019, has informed consumers across Europe, so that they are aware of their rights, claim them and know where to turn to for help in case of any problems or issues. The campaign in Cyprus focused on the 14 days cooling off period, the bank fees and transparency and the product safety rights, as there was a need to raise awareness among Cypriot consumers around those rights.

As technology advances, consumers need even clearer, more accurate and more consistent information to make fully informed purchasing decisions. As a result, the EU has established specific policies aiming at setting a dynamic consumer rights framework for all member states which ensures transparency and creates trust. Through harmonised consumer related legislation, the EU facilitates online shopping by enabling consumers to make informed decisions and buy safely according to their needs.

Enhance your role as a consumer by learning your rights here.
