Call for proposal - Networks of towns 2015 Networks of towns 2015 Closed!

Objectives

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.

Actions

Municipalities and associations working together on a common theme in a long-term perspective may wish to develop 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.
