Europe for Citizens - One programme, 500 million voices!

Home / Base

The programme “Europe for Citizens”, funded by the European Commission enables citizens who work hard to make their communities better places to meet and connect with their peers from all over Europe. Thanks to this extremely inclusive programme, millions of European citizens from capitals, cities, and villages gained understanding on European history and work, participated to civic life, and engaged in voluntary activities, while European institutions listened to their ideas, needs, and concerns.

MEP María Teresa Giménez Barbat (Group of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe - ALDE), is the Rapporteur of the programme Europe for Citizens. With the support of ALDA, MEP Giménez Barbat and ALDE group launched the campaign “One programme, 500 million voices!”, to remind EU citizens and institutions the importance of dialogue and exchange, axes of the programme.

Europe for Citizens is the direct phone line accessible to all of us Europeans, to help building a better Union, making us appreciate our diversity while feeling we belong to the same house. In times of decreasing social cohesion and trust, such an important tool giving a voice to European citizens should be further strengthened.
