The European Capital of Democracy is a Europe-wide initiative of the ECoD Non-Profit Organisation, powered by The Innovation in Politics Institute to promote democracy. From 2022, each year one city will be selected in a two-stage process – by a jury of experts and a jury of 10,000 European citizens – and granted this honorary title.
Together with its citizens, the European Capital of Democracy curates, organises and hosts a variety of activities that strengthen democracy. Visitors from all over Europe – politicians, experts, civil society actors, artists, citizens and media representatives – are invited to take part in the initiative and make the city a stage for European democracy.
