The partnership principle is part of the DNA of cohesion policy, but there is a growing consensus on the need to "do more" to involve citizens. The recent Eurobarometer from April 2019 suggests that 77% of respondents consider that social accountability in their country can be improved. Citizens can play a crucial role in identifying development challenges or actively intervening in urban development. The Regiostars finalists will bring forward their experiences in engaging citizens thanks to the cohesion policy.
