ALDA+ is excited to disseminate the CERV-2024-CITIZENS-TOWN-TT call for proposals, focusing on Town Twinning initiatives. This programme offers a unique opportunity for municipalities and local communities to engage in international exchanges that celebrate the rich diversity and shared heritage of the European Union. Through these exchanges, citizens can gain practical experiences that foster mutual understanding, friendship, and a stronger sense of European identity.

The Town Twinning programme aims to promote exchanges between citizens from different countries, providing them with practical experiences of the EU’s common heritage. It seeks to enhance mutual understanding and tolerance, foster a sense of European belonging and identity, support peaceful relations and active local participation, encourage cooperation and the exchange of best practices between municipalities, and reinforce the role of local and regional authorities in European integration.

Projects under this call should focus on intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding, reflection on a new narrative for Europe that is citizen-oriented and forward-looking, debates on the EU’s achievements and current challenges, and addressing themes like solidarity, inclusion, and the EU’s response to societal challenges. 

Eligible activities include workshops, seminars, and conferences, training activities and expert meetings, cultural events, festivals, and exhibitions, awareness-raising activities, development and dissemination of good practices, and the use of social media and communication tools.
