    An inovative communication tools with a deep cultural approach

    A permanent AND CONCRETE citizens INVOLVEMENT Recent communication experiences leading to events such as, for example, Brexit or to the advent in Europe of exacerbated nationalisms antithetical to the European Integration project, should make us reflect on the need to invest on inovative communication tools with a deep cultural approach. We intend to share our idea on a constructive discussion within EWRC and, precisely, to start a reflection on whether or not to invest in a project relating to the creation of a EUROPEAN NETWORK of cities (expecially small villages of europe) with a common communication tool, based on a cultural approach, for: ---- European integration process; -----solving social problems (not only as regards unemployment, depopulation, youth unease, etc. .. but also, for example, regarding issues such as corruption - and contributing to the improvement of living conditions and of work in our territories); -----solve global problems; ----- involve young people, with particular reference to the NEETs; -----spreading the results of research and innovation in our territories (in relation to this aspect is of particular interest a proposal that we are submitting to the attention of CORDIS );…We are looking for cities interested in joining our European/international network.
