CLOE project seminar "European Citizenship and Participation to Fight Euroscepticism", in Sicily

28. June 2017

Peipsi CTC coordinator Jaana participated in the 4th event of the @cloeproject, A Closer Europe project that aims to fight Euroscepticism through participation and rising awareness about European citizenship.

The event took place in Sicily 26-28 June.

Introduction lectures and country profiles were followed by a detailed overview on how the township of Mazara del Vallo has dealt with participation and integration of their minorities. That was demonstrated by the very interesting meetings with the Tunisian community leader, president of the Distretto Produttivo della Pesca and coordinators and members of the Home Hope Community (refugee programmes).

Overall the event showed that the crisis European Union is facing today can, if not solved, be alleviated by an aware society that actively seeks out participation opportunities for their community.
