The Europe for Citizens programme

The European Union is made of its citizens and for its citizens! With this in mind, the Europe for Citizens Programme is funding projects and activities aimed at getting the EU’s 500 million inhabitants to play a greater part in the development of the EU.

By funding schemes and activities in which citizens can participate, the Programme is promoting Europe’s shared history and values, and fostering a sense of ownership for how the EU develops.

Projects funded under the Programme are run by local authorities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), think tanks, trade unions, universities or others. Projects bring people together to talk about the EU integration, policies and values, enhance mutual understanding between them, boost their awareness of the societal impact of EU policies and encourage them to participate in shaping the future of the EU.
