Read the foreword by Dimitris Avramopoulos, Commissioner
Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship, European Commission.
“In 2018 the Europe for Citizens programme continued to stimulate EU citizens’ democratic engagement to debate and act on the issues that are at the top of the EU political agenda and EU policies: the future of Europe, migration, security and socio-economic solidarity. This report illustrates how this programme enables citizens to make their voice heard on EU policies — on what they are, or on what they think they should be. As shown by the numerous “European Citizens’ Consultations” that took place across our
continent last year, EU citizens do indeed wish to have a say on what the European institutions do. The lively stories and testimonies of successful projects show that Europe for Citizens programme has created a more democratic space for active European citizenship since 2014. It is especially heartening to learn that most participants are young people. The Europe for Citizens programme also participated in the activities of the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage. The cultural dimension has always been a significant component of the selected projects, notably within the remembrance strand, that enables citizens to reflect and discuss our shared Europeans history and its implications on our common future”.
