The program we have planned consists of events (folk song and dance performances, cultural programs, folk art exhibitions, brainstorming, live activities) that will facilitate meetings between the representatives of different partner towns, will foster intercultural dialogue and exchange of opinions and experiences in the spirit of tolerance and reverence for the common European past and culture.The events mentioned above will strengthen and diversify partner town relations, will allow us to know and develop respect for each other’s values and will promote awareness of our common European cultural heritage.By raising awareness of commemorations of major historical turning points in recent European history, citizens could meaningfully engage in a reflection on the origins of the EU, the history of European integration as a civilising project preserving peace among its members, and finally on today’s Europe, thereby moving beyond the past and building the future.
A significant aim of the event was to raise the participants’ awareness of their European citizenship by familiarizing them with their fundamental rights and the opportunities provided by the EU, with special regard to submitting applications and obtaining grants, and last, but not least, by encouraging expression of opinion and active participation in order to build the common Europe.
