By involving municipalities, migrant groups, and research teams across Europe, MILE aims to empower migrants and refugees through research-based participation and communication tools and help to build lasting connections between migrant groups and local governments in Europe. In the long-run, the locally-tailored participation tools developed and co-created by the project partners aim to serve as a springboard for deeper social, economic, cultural and political inclusion. The project is co-funded by the European Union’s Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund and involves partners in Belgium, Greece, Latvia, Spain, the Netherlands, and the UK.
UPLIFT is a European project exploring how young people's voices can be put at the centre of youth policy in areas of housing, education and employment. In Barakaldo (Spain) youngsters, researchers and policy makers are working together in a co-creative process to improve local housing policies.

For young people living near protected areas, the Youth Manifesto harnesses their ideas and calls for action from decision-makers: to give them a role in the future of their communities. Implementation has started in at least 4 countries and is a top priority for EUROPARC.
The Sensing for Justice project researches the potential of civic environmental monitoring as a source of evidence in environmental justice litigation, and as a tool for conflict mediation. We also assess how civic monitoring can be legitimized based on existing and new rights, such as the right to contribute to environmental information.
TRANSFORM (Territories as Responsive and Accountable Networks of S3 through new Forms of Open and Responsible decision-Making) is a three-year H2020 project that aims to introduce citizen engagement practices into the governance of regional R&I, dealing in particular with a key territorial policy, the Smart Specialisation Strategy (S3), in three European territories: Lombardy (Italy), Catalonia (Spain) and Brussels-Capital (Belgium). Under the common framework of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), each region is piloting actions aimed at implementing open and inclusive processes that better link local research and innovation to societal needs, applying co-design, co-creation and citizen science approaches.
Agora.brussels has been piloting deliberative assemblies of citizens drawn by lot in Brussels since 2018. Set up by dozens of volunteers keen to reinvigorate democracy, the citizens’ movement participated in the 2019 regional elections and obtained one seat in the Brussels’ Regional Parliament. It randomly selected 89 people from all neighbourhoods and strata of Brussels population. They deliberated on housing in Brussels with the help of experts and issued a policy resolution in December 2020. In 2021, two more assemblies addressed a range of topics and a fourth one is currently deliberating on environment. Agora’s elected MP promotes the resulting positions in Parliament.
This project is a journey of discovery through EU citizens' feelings about Europe - a message of hope for the future which reveals an appeal to promote debate around understanding and awareness. Europe means above all "democracy," and democracy means participation: a place where everyone feels free to express their opinions and confront them with those of others, even beyond their own geographical borders. The aim is to capture portraits and feelings of people on the street - without any distinction of nationality, profession, social and cultural background - asking the same question: What is Europe to you? The journey so far has travelled through Athens, Berlin, Milan, Rome, Paris, and Budapest and will continue next to the Baltic states, Prague, Madrid, Brussels and other European cities.
Preparing young immigrants to engage into cultural entrepreneurship projects and overcome the specific obstacles they might face by exchange of best practices and developing innovative tools for youth workers is the main goal of the “CULTURE: CULTural entrepreneURship Education for young immigrants” project.
