#CitizensRoute: what is it?

Did you ever think about how we could create a more democratic and accessible European Union? Do you think about how we can shift the focus of politics away from the national level, and a bit more towards the European level? You don’t? Really? Come and join us, let’s explore the potentialities of a common democracy!

#CitizensRoute is about a two-year citizen process to turn audible and contribute to grow the trans-European political debate/offer/ideas/figures/movements we need in the next European election for democracy to prevail. Don’t be shy, visit our website.

#CitizensRoute is an initiative of the Franck Biancheri Network (which includes the AAFB – Friends of Franck Biancheri Association) and the Change Agent Network (iCAN), in partnership with the networks AEGEE-Europe, Cambiamo Rotta all’Europa and Stand up for Europe, POUR écrire la Liberté,, Europe Populaire, AEGEE-Toulouse, Maison du Développement Durable, BBK/Door Vriendschap Sterker, Creatopia, Eyes on Europe, Citoyennes pour l’Europe, Institut Locarn…
