Title: ECOEU - The European Ecology Protection Twinning Project
Summary
ECOEU is a town-twinning initiative addressing the opportunities and challenges of management and protection of ecology. The overall objective is to improve the public use and sustainable management of ecology protection trough the active involvement of citizens, not only as observes but also as co-managers, and stakeholders in decision-making. This issue was identified within partner towns during previous projects (i.e. building mutual platform supporting local authorities to engage in networking initiatives, fostering the integration of civic society organizations and volunteers, importance of cross-border cooperation between NGOs and volunteers in partner towns ).ECOEU addresses the above issues involving citizens as active actors, to:•promote a responsible relation to the ecology ( i.e. environment )•engage in sustainable management•develop pilot EU volunteer actions for sustainable ecology protectionThus, ECOEU:•enhances the sense of EU active citizenship•creates opportunities for LAs to engage their citizens at the EU level.ECOEU acknowledges above all the importance of citizens’ involvement for the construction of a more sustainable Europe. Active citizenship, however, is truly achieved only when civic engagement is in-built in policy-making (i.e. citizens’ feedback incorporated in policy tuning). In activities in Trogir participants (LAs, CSOs, high-school and university students, citizens, experts, professionals) engage in:•Workshops&Conferences – to learn about relevant EU and local policies and how to influence them•Awareness raising&environment cleaning activities – to experience social engagementultimately producing:•Guidelines for ecology EU Volunteering•Action Plan for future civil society joint initiatives (Ecology Volunteering Day of Twin Towns - ECODAY 2018 )•Memorandum of Future Cooperation- will be signed later as a follow-up of the project.• The European Ecological Federation will be involved in project realization
