The European Committee of the Regions is aiming at bringing the EU institutions closer to its citizens. This is achieved by a permanent mechanism and dialogues with citizens on Europe matters. All decisions must be taken as close as possible to citizens, in line with the subsidiarity, inclusiveness and participatory principles of the European democracy model. We collaborate with other organisations to champion the roll out of innovative methods of citizen participation.
