After the event, a document containing 25 proposals to revive the European project was drafted and endorsed also by ALDA. The text entitled “Hope for Europe! 25 proposals to revive the European project”, designed with both local and regional elected representatives and European institutions in mind, presents solutions to reconnect citizens with public action at every level: local, regional, national and European. To this aim, it stresses the importance of active participation in the decision-making process including, in particular, those people from social groups that are still poorly represented – especially women, young people and migrants.

The 25 proposals are available in английский и французский язык.
