Co-funded by the Europe for Citizens Programme of the European Union, Democracy is Europe (DEMEU) aims at raising awareness of remembrance, common history and values and the Union’s aim that is to promote peace, its values and the well-being of its peoples by stimulating debate, reflection and development of networks.

The project will take place until July 2021, encouraging participants to reflect on the centrality of the European ideals in the revolutions of 1989-1991 and on the future of values in Europe and the EU future. 

Due to the fact that, paradoxically, it is in this region that today the ideas of Europe and liberal democracy are more challenged, with the emergence of nationalist and populist movements that question these ideals and contributing to making the distance between Central Europe’s new EU members and the EU wider, our geographical focus will be in 6 countries: Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Czechia, Estonia and Poland.

The implementation entails a series of 6 local events in countries/related to countries that have seen in 1989-1991 the fall of communism and the emergence of new democratic regimes, specifically in Central and Eastern Europe and the Baltics.
