Research for CULT Committee - Europe for Citizens: Towards the Next Programme Generation

15-05-2018

Citizenship is a key element of democracy, and citizens’ participation is needed for democracy to function. As interests and challenges touching citizens do not follow state borders, it is important that citizens’ activity also crosses borders. The funding distributed through the Europe for Citizens programme is therefore crucial. Due to its combination of participation and remembrance, the programme allows addressing the complex challenges and promises related to democracy, citizenship and diversity, the core topics of the programme.
