Polart Circle Event: Active in Europe: what are the advocacy prospects in the aftermath of the European elections? – Rome
On 8 July 2019, Cittadinanzattiva organised a conference in Rome to present the Polart Circle project and discuss the citizens’ issues related to current European policies and the last elections.
Supported by the “Active Citizenship Network” of which it is a member, the association proposed a programme rich in reflections on the possible futures following the European elections. The event brought together members of the Active Citizenship Network as well as NGOs and associations working in the fields of citizenship and European policies.
The day was punctuated by a presentation of Cittadinanzattiva’s activities, of the Polart Circle project enriched by a testimony and a round table bringing together guests from different fields of expertise acting in Europe.
