TIC-TAC Training, Information, Cooperation - Towards Active Citizenship
Timespan: January 16th 2012 – January 17th 2013
TIC-TAC gathers 23 partners from Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Ireland, Italy, Macedonia, Malta, Romania, Slovakia and Spain. Its main objective is to increase awareness about the European Union, the Europe for Citizens Programme and opportunities for increasing citizen participation at local and European level. It promotes the four actions of the Europe for Citizens Programme and encourages quality projects under this programme among ALDA’s members and partners.
The project aims at establishing partnerships between different stakeholders, local authorities, civil society organisations and research centres. It mainly raises their awareness about the importance to act as active citizenship activators and promote a greater sense of ownership of the EU and European values. The project aims also at providing training, information and cooperation opportunities within Europe for Citizens that would contribute to creating new partnerships and networks.
The work-programme foresees the following main activities:
- An international training course held in Brussels on 29th-31st March 2012 focused on the Europe for Citizens programme;
- 12 Local Information Days disseminate the Europe for Citizens objectives locally
