“Participatory democracy: sharing, proposing, deciding” will be the slogan of the 2014 Democracy Week

On 24 March 2014, the Bureau of the Congress decided to dedicate the 2014 Edition of the European Local Democracy Week (ELDW) to participatory democracy and adopted a new slogan: ''Participatory democracy: sharing, proposing, deciding''. A special emphasis will be given to youth participation, which will also give the opportunity to establish a link between the ELDW and the World Forum for Democracy (3-5 November 2014) which will focus on Youth. “It is our homework to teach, educate and inform young people about the importance of democracy” underlined Gaye Doganoglu (Turquie, PPE/CCE), political coordinator of ELDW after having presented the conclusions of the general ELDW coordination meeting, held in Paris, on 14 February 2014 to the Congress Bureau.
