Obstacles, recommendations and proposals to improve Citizens Participation and Civil Dialogue

European Year of Citizens AllianceEUNET is member of the European Year of Citizens Alliance (EYCA). The European Year of Citizens Alliance (EYCA) is an open network of European and national civil society organisations willing to promote active citizenship as a core element of the European democracy in the frame of the European Year of Citizens 2013.

The Alliance has adopted a Manifesto to express its political guidelines and common vision for a wide understanding of European citizenship. The Manifesto has been translated into several European languages.

Besides the plenary meetings, EUNET takes part in Working Group 1 “Participatory Citizenship and Civil Dialogue”. So far two meetings of the working group took place during the first three month of the year. The members of the group focused on obstacles of active citizenship and how to overcome them.
