European Local Democracy Week

The European Local Democracy Week (ELDW) is a pan-European event  which aims at boosting local democracy and citizen participation. This initiative is co-ordinated by the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe.

Local authorities from the 46 Council of Europe member States and their associations are invited to register and organise public events to promote and foster democratic participation at grassroots level.

Local authorities from other countries are also welcome to report local democracy week activities organised with citizens in their communities.
