CESIE, in the framework of the project called “SOLE-Social Networks for Local Empowerment” (co-financed by the Europe for Citizens programme Action 1.2.2), is pleased to invite representatives of Sicilian municipalities and non-profit organisations to the session “Local Entities and access to direct European funding. A resource or a problem?”, organised together with the Municipality of Cefalù and Ancisicilia during the training conference “Financing of local entities and new taxation of municipalities” on 4th of December 2012.
In this session, CESIE will present the Europe for Citizens programme and the different opportunities of funding of 2013 for public authorities and civil society organisations. This European programme aims to promote active citizenship and European identity and enhance the sense of belonging to the European Union, and offers the possibility to co-finance actions aimed at the exchange between the twinned cities, and the organisation of events for the debate and the meeting between citizens from different European countries on various relevant topics (from memory to the future of the EU). This programme is of great relevance since 2013 has been chosen as the European Year of Citizens. The first call for proposals is expected on February 2013.
The event will be also an occasion to present the SOLE network and invite participants to take part of it to foster their opportunities of networking at European level.
