Programme: Europe for Citizens
Identifier: 577176-CITIZ-1-2016-1-IT-CITIZ-NT
Title: Metropolitan Europeans in Active Network, Inducing Novelties in Governance
Summary
The project will allow citizens to develop an active citizenship in the democratic life of their Metropolitan cities and a strong sense of European identity together with a sense of inclusion and integration among inhabitants. We want to reach this aim by building a thematic network of European Metropolitan Cities that will exchange experiences about the management of Metropolitan Cities and their role in the future of European governance, focusing on the participation of citizens in these processes. The network will gather Metropolitan Cities with years of experiences with the Metropolis institutions and realities. Metropolises are units of implementation because of their proximity with citizens and their considerable leverage in fostering civic participation. Their policy challenges are multi-level, multi-objective and multi-stakeholders and their increasing role in implementing European policies and development initiatives explain the need to improve local governance and participation.MEANING will be the start for a lasting collaboration among partners devoted to improve the tools for citizens’ participation in public decisions.Five international events will be organized, addressing two target groups: citizens, the main target, and policy-makers, essential actors to achieve active citizenship and inclusive governance.Each partner apart from ALDA will also carry out participative local activities in which citizens will be involved in discussing at least one of the covered topics. The events will be a moment for each city to reach its citizens through seminars and workshops dealing with crucial topics for the governance of metropolitan cities.A questionnaire for target groups will be distributed before and after the events to assess the knowledge spread and the increase in sense of ownership towards European and local institutions.A website, necessary to facilitate networking among stakeholders, a movie and a publication about results achieved will be produced.
