Participatory session in Brussels by European Volunteering Capitals

Part of European Week of Regions and Cities

In 2016 EC President Junker launched the European Solidarity Corps as a way to encourage, facilitate and promote solidarity in Europe, with a particular focus on the active engagement of young people.

However, participation is becoming more informal as well as more short-term and case-by-case. This challenges the traditional ways and channels of participation and requires local and regional policy makers to think of new ways of reaching and involving young people so they can play an active part in showing solidarity with others and contributing to building cohesive communities.

This sets the frame for the participatory session on October 10th led by European Volunteering Capitals, including Aarhus Municipality, Konjice Municipality, Guimarães Municipality, Košice Municipality and Sligo Volunteer Centre in collaboration with Central Denmark EU Office & CEV - European Volunteer Centre.

Registration is now open via https://europa.eu/regions-and-cities/
