What does EU citizenship mean? On July 8th in Zagreb, 150 European citizens, gathered together by the European Year of Citizens’ Alliance (EYCA), will exchange views and experiences in a European conference entitled: “EU citizenship: Crossing perspectives”.
In the context of the European Year of Citizens 2013, the EYCA will gather 150 civil society representatives from all over Europe in the capital city of the European Union’s (EU) 28th Member State to debate on EU citizenship and to engage with the core question of citizens’ participation in Europe.
In Croatia, in the Balkans as much as in Europe, the current context urges us to reflect on the meaning of the European project and on our role, as citizens, in it. Speakers from the Balkans and other candidate countries will thus engage in discussion with more than 150 Europeans (civil society
representatives and activists as well as political and institutional representatives) in order to exchange their views and share experiences on the notion of belonging to the European project and a European community.
The key issues and recommendations identified during this conference will be added to the final proposals of the EYCA, thus better involving civil society organisations from the Western Balkans in the current reflection on citizenship taking place in Europe.
