Title: While Innovating and Strenghtening Europe
Summary
Using bottom-up approach and participatory methods, WISE project primarily focused on promoting democratic engagement and active citizenship in local and union policy-making. In the time of crisis, when lots of people find themselves in unfavorable economic or social situation, when more often radicalized movements are appearing, and a huge wave of Euroscepticism is raising all over the Europe - as the referendum in the United Kingdom on the leave from Europe Union, commonly known as Brexit, has confirmed – it has been necessary, probably more than any time before, to reassess where we are heading to. The occasion of remembrance of the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome in 2017 has been a good starting point to reflect on and learn from the past of European Union, as the lunching event in Rome, “Spring for Europe” has successfully shown.Most of the people that took part in the projects felt the need for a transformation in their own societies. The problem was that at the same time, they were usually not aware how to improve the situation. Reflection on the past was the first step, throughout the implementation at the local level of the “EU LEARNING” path form all the partners. In this phase it has been useful and necessary to understand the causes of current problems and accessible means by which the desirable changes can be achieved, the participants have been setting together the priorities (i.e. Euroscepticism, climate change, EU citizenship perception, migration, elections, etc.) of the reflection ongoing under the guide and mentoring of the project partners. Citizens, coming from different countries and different social background, have been engaged in a reflection on which direction EU is heading to, and how they can drive a positive change. Moreover, a specific attention has been paid to the role and responsibilities of the organized civil society in catalyzing citizens’ needs and priorities, mobilizing the communities, sensitizing about the EU values, promoting a critical mass, as well as encouraging the EU citizens to take active initiative on a local, regional, national or even European Union´s level: CSOs are fundamental nowadays to actively participate in EU.Project has gathered partners from all over Europe and engaged, among the others, the territories of Rome, Maastricht and Lisbon trying to highlight the places where main treaties were signed within Europe member states.The project´s activities have been organized as following: steering committees: 1 preparatory steering committee online in January 2018, 1 in person in Rome during the launching event in March 2018. Other online meetings have been held regularly every 6 months or when needed to ensure the smooth implementation of the project, settle potential conflicts or issues and adjust the activity plan when needed. 1 in person in Lisbon, in occasion of the final conference in March 2019. The launching international event took place in Rome in March 2018. Between February 2018 and March 2019 all the 16 partners have implemented the local processes (namely 3 local activities implemented as a process, involving a group of citizens reflecting and working on the 3 phases: EU LEARN, EU REFLECT, EU ACT). Different outputs have been produced from the implementation of the local phases (i.e. board game, videos, ECI proposals, etc.). The final event took place in Lisbon on the 12th March 2019, gathering together all the partners for a final reflection on the project and for visibility of the outputs.
