CitiPart is meant to be an interactive network, discussing and reacting on current social and political events on local as well as on European level. Members of the network are towns, Europe Houses, European organisations well known in their countries for their involvement in active citizenship, town twinning committees and youth organisations. The close cooperation with local councillors will give the possibility not only to develop projects but also to carry them out with their help. An extremely low turnout in the European and other national elections, a bad social and economic situation, growing unemployment, especially youth unemployment, and a general tendency not to trust politicians any more are a fertile soil for the constant raise of various populisms and extremisms. CitiPart wants to react against those increasing tendencies throughout discussions and interactive workshops about the three fundamental European values which are SOLIDARITY, TOLERANCE and PEACE, foster the intergenerational dialog and revitalize the exchange between citizens and their local councillors. Each project partner will create a permanent working group of 15 to 20 representatives of their towns’ social fabric. The group will be in charge of the organisation of regular working group meetings’ as well as the organisation of each local conference preceding each multilateral meeting. It is important that each theme will be discussed on a very large local level. The permanent working groups also select their national delegations that will attend the multilateral meetings. The participants: young people and adults, members of the various associations in the participating towns, members of the town twinning committees, teachers, local representatives, etc. Duration of the project and schedule of the meetings: The project CitiPart will last 24 months. A planning of the different activities, meetings and conferences will be established during the first network meeting. The project will start on the 27th September 2015 until the 26th September 2017 and will end with a second network meeting where the results of all national and multilateral meetings will be presented and discussed. There will also be a discussion about the future and further activities of the network.
