The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) is participating in the first edition of the
Jubel Festival - the first European Democracy Festival in Brussels on Saturday 22 September.
Taking place in a rather informal setting, where culture intertwines with politics, policy-making and broader understandings of democracy, the festival aims at arousing the interests of citizens into such usually heavy topics. And fun is definitely the best way to re-engage with disillusioned citizens, most notably the youngest ones!
Using innovative tools and frameworks for citizens dialogues, it is a place for open exchanges and mutual learning. Finally, by putting the citizenry at the very heart of its conception, it also empowers them to participate to the shaping of the future Europe.
