#TheFutureIsYours Strengthening European democracy
European seams: Border regions in conversation — Trinational Citizens’ Dialogue
As the Saxon Ministry of Justice and for Democracy, Europe and Gender Equality (SMJusDEG), we want to actively participate in the future process of the EU. That is why we start a cross-border dialogue. The trinational Youth Forum in Görlitz was the starting point for this dialogue process at the beginning of October. Now we invite you to participate in a dialogue with citizens from Saxony, Lower Silesia (Poland) region Karlovy Vary, Ústí region (Czech Republic) Grand Est (France) and Baden-Württemberg. This dialogue will take place in three events. The geographical location of the Free State of Saxony in the border triangle between Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic offers the best conditions for cross-border dialogue formats. We want to listen to the border regions and find out what is particularly important to you as citizens in relation to the European Union. Where do you see the biggest challenges? Is it climate change? Is it the desire for more direct democracy? Or something completely different? We would like to ask you how strongly you feel connected to the European Union. Could you imagine European citizenship? Should regions be given more say at European level? Should EU citizens be able to vote from 16 onwards? What about respect for human rights in the EU? Through the exchange we want to gather your ideas for future coexistence in the border regions of the east and west of the European Union and together contribute to the future of Europe. NOTE: The continuation event will take place as a six-region dialogue with the participation of Baden-Württemberg (DEU) and Grand Est (FRA) on 10.12.-11.12.2021 (Fridays from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 09 to 15.30) as an online event. Please remember this appointment before! Here is the link to registration at the Six-Regions-Dialog: https://mitdenken.sachsen.de/1026874
