We are building a stronger Europe with resilient democracies based on our common values of social balance, prosperity, and human rights. That’s why we are launching the European Capital of Democracy Initiative, which aims to highlight the democratic practices of cities so citizens can experience real democracy in action and regain trust in this best form of democracy.
From 2021, each year, one city will become the European Capital of Democracy. The initiative kicks off in Vienna: On 18 September 2020, mayors and other politicians, artists and engaged citizens will be joining us as co-founders of the European Capital of Democracy initiative.
The enemies of democracy never sleep. Neither do we.
