Volonteurope: How big is your Active Citizen footprint? Active Citizens – From the local to the global level
19 February, 18:00-20:00 | Rue de Pascale 4-6, Brussels B-1040, Belgium
What is an active citizen? What is the impact of your activism? How does the shift from a local campaign to a global campaign happen?
These are some of the questions that Volonteurope will try to answer during the event, ‘How big is your Active Citizen footprint? Active Citizens: from the local to the global level’.
The event concludes a three year campaign exploring the meaning of active citizenship. The campaign has carried out research into what constitutes active engagement and identified barriers and enablers to active citizenship. This research was used to build a tool to measure active citizenship. Volonteurope and the European Civic Forum will present the results of this campaign. They will be joined by two activists: Marta Lempart, the initiator and organiser of the Polish Women’s strike and Daisy Kendrick, founder of the Ocean Generation, who will share their experiences, discuss with the public the meaning of activism, and share insights on how to increase the impact of a campaign, taking it from the local to the global level.
The event will be followed by a networking reception.
Come and discuss with us the ways in which we can work together to build a Europe of engaged citizens.
