On 4 February 2019, the Polart Circle project was presented in the conference room of the Thon Hotel EU in Brussels, at an event entitled “Initiatives, tools & performing arts to increase participation: focus on healthcare”, organised by Cittadinanzattiva.
With the support of the Active Citizenship Network, of which the Italian association is a member, and Media Partner – Advances in Health and Behavior, this day was an opportunity to present the project from the perspective of health in Europe.
After an introduction to the Polart Circle project and the Moocs that have been developed, rich exchanges took place with European and Italian actors on interactive citizen tools, patients’ rights and European health policies.
