What is the difference between Europe, the European Union and the eurozone?

Eurozone, Europe, European Union… many similar-sounding terms exist, with very different origins and meanings.

To help you better understand, Mon Quotidien offers a quick explanation with an animation. Although it is initially aimed more at children, it sums up the difference between the three terms without big words and with a great deal of pedagogy. We promise you: after this video, you will never confuse the three of them again.

One refers to a geographical area, the second to a political and economic union (which does not include all European countries), and the third to all countries with a single currency (which does not include the entire European Union). Complex, huh? Well, not really.

One thing is certain, however: France and Belgium are part of the three.
