This action aims at deepening the concept of “active European citizenship” and at promoting its understanding all over Europe, therefore contributing to “bringing Europe closer to its citizens”, through three sets of measures.
This measure will support events which are substantial in scale and scope, strike a chord with the peoples of Europe, help to increase their sense of belonging to the same community, make them aware of the history, achievements and values of the European Union, involve them in intercultural dialogue and contribute to the development of their European identity.
These events may include the commemoration of historical events, the celebration of European achievements, artistic events, awareness-raising around specific issues, European-wide conferences and the awarding of prizes to highlight major accomplishments. The use of new technologies, in particular Information Society Technologies, shall be encouraged.
The events will be organised by the Commission, where appropriate in cooperation with the Member States or other relevant partners. No grants will be awarded under this measure, but possibly public procurements.
This Programme Guide will be updated to include the links to the high visibility events that will take place in 2007.
