The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is pleased to invite you to embark on a journey to strengthen dialogue and participation within the context of the European Year of the Citizen 2013.
On 23 and 24 January, we are holding an Open Space event in Brussels to explore future pathways of active European citizenship. The aim of YOUR EUROPE 2013 is to discuss current issues with a view to establishing concrete activities and outcomes (what does active citizenship mean, what are European values etc.); to be a catalyst for strengthening citizens' activism and ownership (trigger ideas, link participants' activities and projects together etc.); and to come up with new creative solutions (how to involve, inform, motivate and mobilise the various actors where participants see the need etc.).
