Call for proposal - Measure Town Twinning - 2015 TOWN-TWINNING-2015 Closed!


Under the overall aim of bringing the Union closer to citizens the general objectives are:
  1. to contribute to citizens' understanding of the Union, its history and diversity;
  2. to foster European citizenship and to improve conditions for civic and democratic participation at Union level.


This measure aims at supporting projects bringing together a wide range of citizens from twinned towns around topics in line with the objectives of the Programme. Priority is given to projects targeting the priorities annually defined for this measure.
By mobilizing citizens at local and Union levels to debate on concrete issues from the European political agenda, this measure will seek to promote civic participation in the Union policy making process and develop opportunities for societal engagement and volunteering at Union level.
Twinning must be understood in largo sensu, thus referring to the municipalities which signed or are engaged to sign twinning agreements as well as to the municipalities having other forms of partnerships fostering their cooperation and cultural links.
