EUROCITIES is pleased to release the teaser video of the 'Cities4Europe - Europe for citizens' campaign.
'Cities4Europe – Europe for citizens': involve - inspire - impact
- involve citizens in a dialogue about the future
- inspire all levels of government to build societies where people come first
- impact the way decisions are taken in Europe
It is time to change the way politics is done in Europe. A year ahead of the European Parliament elections, our campaign will bring people and policymakers together to explore new ways of involving citizens in decision-making. We aim to launch a process that promotes societies where people come first, and where trust between citizens and public authorities is strengthened.
The campaign will come alive on 7 May 2018 with a simultaneous online kick-off involving all participating cities, and a European launch event in Brussels where we will welcome European, national and local political leaders, as well as renowned cultural personalities. A high-level public debate will take place at the BOZAR, and will be followed by a political summit hosted by the mayor of Brussels, Philippe Close, at the city hall.
Cities4Europe – Europe for citizens' will then continue with a series of local events showcasing successful local initiatives that engage citizens, present ideas for new forms of democracy and map out a positive, common future.
The full video will be released on Thursday 12 April. Stay tuned!
