Project summary
Project activities are focused on connecting citizens from twinned towns included in the network through four priority themes:

Priority 1. The role and position of Europe in the world (the fundamental values of the Union, questions of peace and war – historical impact, the advantages and disadvantages of membership in the EU, development of policies and decisions impact on the daily lives of EU citizens, citizens’ expectations from EU membership, the situation of young people in Europe, 2015 – European year of development, the debate about the future of Europe- national and transnational perspectives, suggestions and recommendations)

Priority 2. Growth and prosperity of EU citizens (influencing factors of economic growth, prosperity and competitiveness of individual regions, reasons and consequences of the financial crisis, migration – the basis of long-term unemployment, quality of life, etc., joint proposals for solutions and recommendations)

Priority 3. Inclusive society and social exclusion (the formation of the inclusive thinking and attitudes towards disability through experiential activities, exchange of experience, training of professionals in this respect, the fight against the growing negative phenomena such as racism, xenophobia and intolerance, etc., joint proposals)

Priority 4. Volunteering as an expression of active European citizenship (place and role of volunteering in matters of mutual interest, fundamental human rights, tolerance, inter-cultural dialogue, the contribution of volunteers to society, exchange of experience, joint proposals).

For each priority theme will set up a separate working group formed of experts, local associations, citizens and citizens’ groups, which are the subject directly concerns. Their task will also reach out and involve citizens who have so far shown interest to deal with issues of common interest or have a negative opinion to the EU.
