It is time to change the way politics is done in Europe.
'Cities4Europe - Europe for citizens' is here to:
- involve citizens in a dialogue about our future;
- inspire all levels of government to build societies where people come first;
- impact the way decisions are taken in Europe.
A year ahead of the European Parliament elections, ‘Cities4Europe – Europe for citizens’ brings people and policy makers together to explore new ways of involving citizens in the decision making process. We want to launch a process that promotes the creation of fairer, more just and sustainable societies where people come first.
