For Citizens Talks – Civic & Political Participation
This initiative seeks to bring the citizens closer to the civic society and public sphere of thought, debate and action. For Citizens wants to foster dialogue between different stakeholders, understand their points of view and take advantage of any possible consensus or common ground to promote further cooperation. By creating a safe space for critical thinking and dialogue will help European citizens to use the available information and come up with suggestions and alternatives. We believe that this is a crucial strategy in order to ensure a sustainable, fair and free future for our European society.
Democracy is a system of government based on popular sovereignty, which means the power of any political actor is legitimized by civic support. Unfortunately, many societies demonstrate a progressive deflation of participation and involvement in this domain – which undermines democracy, its values and even the outputs. Considering this trend, we are looking individually at local communities and organising events that enable a flowing, harmonious dialogue between different actors to understand what are the motives for it, what can be done and by whom.
