European Programme Europe for Citizens

The Call for Proposals “Network of Towns” has been published by the European Commission in the framework of the Europe for Citizens Programme.

The general objectives of the “Network of Towns” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Europe for Citizens Programme, are:

- to raise awareness of remembrance, common history and values and the Union's aim that is to promote peace, its values and the well-being of its peoples by stimulating debate, reflection and development of networks;

- to encourage democratic and civic participation of citizens at Union level, by developing citizens' understanding of the Union policy making-process and promoting opportunities for societal and intercultural engagement and volunteering at Union level.

The specific objective of the “Network of Towns” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Europe for Citizens Programme, is to foster municipalities and associations working together on a common theme in a long-term perspective, developing networks of towns to make their cooperation more sustainable. Networking between municipalities on issues of common interest appears to be an important means for enabling the exchange of good practices. Twinning is a strong link that binds municipalities; therefore, the potential of the networks created by a series of town twinning links should be used for developing thematic and long-lasting cooperation between towns. The European Commission supports the development of such networks, which are important for ensuring structured, intense and multifaceted cooperation, therefore contributing to maximizing the impact of the Programme.
