CBW action: Peace weeks
The aim of the project "Citizens Beyond Walls" is fostering inclusive policies to respect Citizens' rights in Europe, with specific focus on new citizens and minorities. Extreme right wing groups are a threat for peace in Europe, where peace is not only absence of conflict but the condition where citizens' are equally endowed of rights. "Citizens Beyond Walls", is an action aimed at activating European Citizens to counter the mentioned process.
Thus, as a part of the structure and with the target to bring closer CBW project to the people, the 8 partner countries are going to host "Peace Weeks", a dedicated Workcamp in each one.
