Metropolitan cities are currently rethinking their roles in the future governance of the EU, and meanwhile 70% of EU decisions are implemented by sub-national governments, which makes a more extensive debate on citizen participation in the democratic processes at the local level particularly important.
With this in mind, the project's aim is to foster a more active approach to citizenship, from the local level all the way up to the European institutions. MEANING will help reinforce citizens' European identity via the building of subject-specific networks of European metropolitan cities and the exchange of experiences. It will also serve as a forum to debate Europe's political and institutional future, with a special focus on the role of metropolitan cities in European governance.
