Action, Measure in the framework Action, Measure in the framework of “Europe for Citizens” Programme: Strand 2. Democratic engagement and civic participation. Networks of towns

Today's person has to be creative and interested in european politics. We are seeking to find ways to promote citizens' interest in their culture, common european history and politics. It is important not to forget that a citizen is a happy person, when he can realize himself in activities that he likes. However, sometimes it is crucial to direct him in the right direction and provide a wider choice. It is a new innovative approach of making business that promotes citizenship and european politics. It inspires to look at yourself as a citizen, as a member of society, as a volunteer that seeks to know and creat. 

General aim: gather community of volunteers, scientists, students, researchers, creators and active european citizens and give it a work place, equipment and opportunity to find out Europe's cultural differences and similarities. We are also seeking to explore citizenship, democracy and Europe in a creative and entrepreneurial way. 

Specific aim: Network of Partners. 

Main activities: 

Five meetings (events). Two events in partners' 

countries and three events in Lithuania, Panevėžys city. 


We will promote the citizenship, review the politics of different countries and educate a creative society.
