Read the report from the project Work Package 5Citizens Voices on Sustainable Development Goals, organised by the project partner from Portugal – Fundao Municipality. This Work Package was executed in four connected parts between December 2023 and Jauary 2024. The aim of the events, which together constitute the WP3, was to bring young people closer to European Parliamentarians and EU institutions in view of the next European Elections in 2024, to discuss participatory democracy and the European Elections on the local level.
