The prospects for European Local Democracy Week
On 18 November 2016, György Illes, Head of the Hungarian delegation to the Congress, opened a workshop to assess the European Local Democracy Week (ELDW), in Budapest, Hungary. Representatives from Amadora (Portugal), Bydgoszcz and Katowice (Poland), Chania and Domokos (Greece), Mioveni (Romania), Reggio Calabria (Italy), Stockton-on-Tees (United Kingdom) and Valongo (Portugal) took stock of their experiences of the ELDW and discussed potential developments. The participants unanimously welcomed the role of ELDW as an event that encourages citizen participation and the spirit of living together, underlining the fact that the week is now a much anticipated event in the participating authorities. Amongst the points raised concerning future ELDW editions was the need to encourage easier access to information of partner authorities, stronger youth involvement, strengthened links with informal education and co-operation between different stakeholders within local and regional government. The conclusions of the workshop will help define future prospects for ELDW, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2017
