Building Europe with Local Councillors
One year after its launch, the Building Europe with Local Councillors network is delighted to share the second issue of its bulletin!
The community’s reach is fast expanding, with new applications submitted on a regular basis. Even more impressive is the growing rate of membership within each EU country. Romania is breaking new ground: thanks to the invaluable collaboration of key local governments’ stakeholders and the European Commission Representation in Bucharest, about 100 municipalities and local councillors have applied to join the network in the past months.
This bulletin features for the first time BELC members’ initiatives and best practices, along with their emphasis on local sensitivities, and highlights the continuing European Commission services, including visits and webinars, all aimed at empowering local councillors to communicate the EU to their citizens.
