2013 is the European Year of Citizens. The European Year raises awareness of EU citizens' rights and will trigger public debate on the development of EU citizenship in particular and of Europe in general, with a view to the EP elections of 2014.
The European Year 2013 is an excellent opportunity for CoR members and other stakeholders at local and regional level to debate about Europe with citizens in the member states.
This page offers useful background documentation, helping to bring the key messages of EU citizenship at a local level.
