ELDW is targeted specifically at local and regional authorities (local communities, cities, municipalities, provinces, regions).
In order to take part in the ELDW as Partner of the Week, simply follow these recommendations:
Organise the ELDW with the “12-Star” status?
Towns, local and regional authorities wishing to give special prominence to their participation in European Local Democracy Week, may organise their Week as a “12-Star” authority.
This title is intended to highlight the commitment with which a city council/a municipality raises its citizens’ awareness of local democracy and encourages them to make use of all the opportunities provided through participatory democracy processes.
In order to take part in European Local Democracy Week as a “12-Star”, municipalities/other local entities must undertake to fulfil five criteria and conditions. To know more click here.
Those authorities who are not able to fulfill all of these criteria are more than encouraged to organise events as Partner of the ELDW, and the Congress will reckon their involvement in the ELDW.
