The Citizen Engagement Festival is an annual event organised by the Joint Research Centre in the framework of the EU Community of Practice on Citizen Engagement. This year, the festival will be held in Brussels, on the 9 & 10 of December 2019. The aim is to reach out to colleagues across EU institutions and practitioners from different Member States, civil society organisations to strengthen understanding of the role of citizen engagement across the policy cycle.
The activities envisaged during the two days fall roughly into the following categories: showcasing, debating, networking, capacity building, planning and further consolidation.
