Subprogrammes of Europe for Citizens

Democratic Engagement and Civic Participation

This subprogramme supports:

  • Activities covering civic participation, focusing in particular on European Union policies
  • Initiatives developing opportunities for mutual understanding, intercultural learning, solidarity, societal engagement and volunteering at EU level

For this purpose, three specific measures are foreseen:

  • Town twinning
  • Networks of towns
  • Civil society projects

European remembrance

This strand supports activities inviting reflection on European cultural diversity and on common values. It aims to finance projects reflecting on causes of totalitarian regimes in Europe's modern history (especially, but not exclusively, Nazism that led to the Holocaust, Fascism, Stalinism and totalitarian communist regimes) and to commemorate the victims of their crimes. This strand also concerns other defining moments and reference points in recent European history. Preference will be given to projects encouraging tolerance, mutual understanding, intercultural dialogue and reconciliation.
