​Be part of "Building Europe with Local Councillors"
The European Commission has launched the 'Building Europe with Local Councillors' project. Its aim is to equip local councillors and authorities across the EU with the tools they need to communicate about the EU to people in their local constituency or area. 

The project is currently setting up a network across the EU, providing local authorities with access to up-to-date material about EU policy and rules that might affect their constituency, targeted webinars about key issues, communication material, as well as open the possibility to visit the EU institutions. 

To join the network, a contact person has to fill in a form on the project website and upload a signed declaration. The call is open on a rolling basis, which means that there is no deadline. The call will stay open as long as the project continues. Also note that only one councillor per local entity can be part of the network at any given time.

The project is a direct response to one of the proposals from the Conference on the Future of Europe which called for “a system of local EU Councillors, as a way to reduce the distance between the EU institutions and European citizens”.

The project is implemented in close cooperation with the Committee of the Regions and its 'EU Network of Regional and Local Councillors'
