Call for application to the 2018 NCG European citizenship initiatives Forum in Nantes (France)
Together with local associations, Nantes Metropole and the City of Nantes are organiding a new edition of Nantes Creative Generations Forum on 24-27 October 2018.
Everywhere in Europe, from Amsterdam to Séville, from Warsaw to Nantes, young citizens create, engage and innovate in order to strengthen life quality in their community.Fight against discriminations, reinforcement of relations between citizens, solidarity, protection of the environment, artistic collaboration – every initiative is unique but all of them pursue a common objective : to strengthen the notion of “living together”.
In order to allow these young people to meet, to learn and perhaps to experiment with new forms of projects with a European dimension, the Nantes Creative Generations Forum brings together every year participants from Nantes and Europe to present a concrete initiative. The objective is to encourage and stimulate European exchanges so that they can go further together.
