The citizen’s effect
25 features about the Europe for citizens programme
Public forums and shared spaces in which citizens can debate and deliberate have always constituted essential elements of a democratic society. Today, the Europe for Citizens Programme serves to create a modern European agora. Launched in 2007, the programme supports initiatives that bring people together in international and intercultural exchanges. Europe for Citizens is reaching an important milestone. The 2007-2013 cycle draws to a close and a new seven year programme is planned to begin in 2014. In the light of the remarkable results produced so far, the programme is going to be continued... and fine tuned to suit the contexts of the changing times. A greater emphasis will be placed on initiatives that stimulate debate, reflection and cooperation that contribute to citizens understanding of the European Union. The aim is to foster European citizenship and encourage civic participation at Union level. This booklet brings the stories behind 25 selected projects to the fore, showcasing the core elements that define the European Citizenship of the 21st century.
