Still have to clarify the topic but it will be something like “What are the commons” or “what does the concept of commons mean to you”?

Paris It seems that every country has a different definition of commons. Let’s take for example the health care, which for the most part is provided by the government in Europe but this is not the case in the USA. So what are the commons? Is the term of commons applicable in each different context? What does this concept bring in terms of new approaches and opportunities for citizens? The idea is to build on the forum we currently organise, but we need to redefine our approach to have coherent activities on commons throughout the year. List keywords/themes the activity relates to Economy & Fight against privatisation & Local governance and citizens (i.e. migration, economy, etc) What will it achieve? A more in-depth understanding of the concept of commons ; A better understanding of the situation in other European countries; What does it mean in terms of citizen ‘involvement/community-led development?” The “sub-topic” of community-led development can be specifically addressed as well (in accordance with the work done during the festival - the introduction of the “cities in transition” movement) What outputs will it deliver (i.e. event/publication/campaign/training)? Workshop with creative approaches on commons/community-led development/water (including activities targeting children) A public discussion Publications/articles The discussion will be a local event but we would like to encourage other cities to organise also public discussions, so that we could compare the results and probably publish them in an article. We are also interested in the situation of commons in different countries.

Will it be a local activity, open to other groups, or a network-wide activity? What makes it transnational?

What future for Water and Commons in Europe? (built on a PPP forum) Paris This activity builds on one of the PPP 2012 topics, the commons in Europe. In France water is a hot topic now. Last March in Marseille took place an Alternative World Water Forum. What is more, the number of local authorities, that have decided to recreate a sort of public service for water, is growing. The first goal is to have a closer look at the challenges as to how Water can be accepted as a real common good. The second goal of this activity is to broaden the discussion on the concept of commons and the potential to unite the struggles against privatisation that are currently led in Europe, to defend natural resources, social and cultural goods, and public services.

So that people from different European countries, engaged in struggles to defend cultural places or to put an end to ACTA, will come to open up the wider challenges, related to the use of commons as a political concept. List keywords/themes the activity relates to Economy & Fight against privatisation & Local governance and citizens (i.e. migration, economy, etc) What will it achieve? A better understanding of what “commons” mean, both in theoretical terms (i.e the potential to use it as a political concept and to rethink struggles in Europe) and in concrete terms (concrete impacts and challenges in specific sectors such as Water) What outputs will it deliver (i.e. A large forum will be organised with the help of Paris municipality to gather event/publication/campaign/training)? French and European actors, who are involved in defending water and commons at local and EU level.

Exploring different forms of identity in the city What is your idea for a transnational activity/project called? Where is it based? Describe the idea for the activity P.L.A.Y. (Participation, Learning, Action, Youth) for Urban Dialogue (Youth in Action Program) Bologna P.L.A.Y. is a project aiming to foster active citizenship and to improve mutual understanding in European metropolitan areas. In this context, with “Urban Dialogue” we mean concrete practices reinforcing social cohesion inside or between communities: promoting better relations with migrants and other cultures, fighting exclusion and empowering minorities. The aim of the P.L.A.Y. project is to involve young people from three European countries (Italy, United Kingdom, Spain) who will work together to design, organize and perform a transnational “Serious Urban Game”, a public playful event to be held at the same time in different metropolitan areas across Europe with the objective to foster urban dialogue in a pleasant yet effective way. Such ludic activity will require players to explore urban areas, to interact with other citizens and minority groups collecting narratives and anecdotes to be shared with the remaining players in other countries via a videoconferencing system set up for the game. The core creative group for the P.L.A.Y. project will be composed by twelve young persons from three European cities (Bologna, Italy; London, Barcelona), who will actively participate in a process of design and urban exploration towards the Serious Urban Game. Young participants will learn the basics of urban game-design and will be responsible for the development of the conclusive game and its adaptation to the respective cities. Dialogue, Urban Game, Youth Exchange Integration among young Europeans, benefits for the territories were the final urban game will take place. Workshops and final event during the Transeuropa Festival This is a transnational activity taking place in Italy, Spain and UK The network with new technologies and the final event happening during the Festival

We think that this project has great potentialities and that could be extended to other cities during the Transeuropa Festival and European Alternatives could help getting fundings (for example putting this activities among those ones funded for the Festival). We must wait to see if we get fundings from the European Union for this project.

We want to raise the topic of “double life” many of the migrants have - their adaptation in their new country and the life they still have in their homeland (family and relatives).

Paris Firstly, our idea is to explore into detail what is the process of adaptation, once you have arrived into your new host country. Furthermore, we would like also to draw the attention to the situation of migrants that cannot been followed-up, once they have arrived in the country, because they do not meet certain administrative requirements. Secondly, we’d like to explore the impact (cultural & economic) of migrants on their country of arrival and on their country of origin.

It’s a continuation of the transnational walk so we take a learning experience one step further We have funding from YiA We run a Stammtisch (a meeting open for the group and some members of the public but not with large audience) to discuss themes of current importance to allow the local group to get together and discuss. Often local group meetings are very organisational so this is a way to offer something else then that. Next one in November with an input from an activist for Syrian refugees in Germany We will develop the local communication team in order to act stronger in public space and communication channels.

Bologna Local Group is now taking part in the activities of a place that normally is a dormitory (one of the biggest in the city) but at the same time is the headquarters of several associations/realities in Bologna, dealing with theatre, sport, recycling, homeless people, etc, trying to open the structure to society and to bring people from “outside” into the “inside”. Together with these associations we organize an event every month; if the weather is good there is a garden that can be used where the environment is really nice and comfortable. On Thursday 27 of September the evening was led by European Alternatives and the screening of the video “Citizens2: Voices for a diverse Europe”, output of the transnational project. The evening was a great success and there was a great debate among the public, getting opinions also from the people living in the dormitory, most of which were young migrants or whose parents were migrants. Migration, poverty, social exclusion, economy These events will permit to the Bologna civil society to get in contact with a reality always put a part from the city, almost hidden. It also the occasion for the people living in the dormitory to meet and interact with “the outside”. Finally it is a great chance to make European Alternatives more popular in the city of Bologna. We might write articles on the events organized in this place. It could get an open activity if some of the other local groups might want to participate in the organization of an event. The presence of European Alternatives among the associations involved and the projects and themes brought by us. Not at the moment. Good communication skills would be useful.

Only Sofia for now, looking for partners Share experience, artistic skills

Not decided yet. Living Library – (no concrete name so far) Prague Organising a moving living library. After a pilot and a “real” living library in Prague, once a month, or once in two months, the library would go to a different town in the Czech republic (Brno, Ostrava, Olomouc, Ceské Budejovice, Plzen, Liberec, etc). Hence, it would be a long term project; if it works, it could be a “regular” activity of Transeuropa Prague. Stereotypes; tolerance; migration; minorities; Raising awareness, especially among young people, about stereotypes, racism, etc. What we would like to achieve is to set a regular dialogue between people; between students, between Czechs and non-Czechs, etc. Make people think about these important issues, share their experience, overcome their own prejudices, teach their friends/acquaintances/any other people about these issues, etc. Perhaps we could imagine to develop, in parallel to the living library sessions, workshops and training for “multiplicators” who would intervene in schools. It will be a local activity, though we can imagine to invite from time to time people from other local groups to take part in the project. The topics, the “Books” (who will be Czechs and non-Czechs, hopefully). Any advice from other groups which organised a living library is welcome. Same. We will apply for an Open Society Foundation grant; I think we don’t require any

Paris Europe and Mediterranean region have been always involved in active exchanges because of their geographical position throughout the history. But do we really know each other? Mediterranean is not only Spain, Italy and Greece but we tend to forget that quite often. Today, following the global economic crisis, the young people from this region are brought closer because they are facing the similar problems like high rates of unemployment and they could easier relate to each other. But what is their actual image of their counterparts? What is Europe for Mediterranean and Mediterranean for Europe? What does it mean to them to be European or Mediterranean, or both? Do these two terms overlap? Can we share a common identity? List keywords/themes the activity relates to Migration & Culture & Economy (i.e. migration, economy, etc) What will it achieve? The aim of this project is to create a broader visibility and a more detailed image of the Euro-Mediterranean region and to foster a cultural dialogue among the young people from Europe and Mediterranean region (North Africa, South Europe and if possible East Mediterranean) What outputs will it deliver (i.e. As a first step we would like to create a short film with young people from event/publication/campaign/training)? Europe and the Mediterranean region asking them what Europe and Mediterranean is for them. (We are still thinking about the exact question that we will ask). The movie can be shown during the Transeuropa Festival Paris in October (see with video team of Transeuropa +Séverine + people motivated from other local groups and from Paris) Seconds step - we will encourage publications of short essays on the topic EuroMediterranean identity. Third step - organise a discussion in Paris - Topic to be decided Will it be a local activity, open to other We would like to develop this project with countries from the Mediterranean groups, or a network-wide activity? region - Egypt and Spain (which are already taking part in the project “Stop youth precarity…”) but it will be interesting to have an even broader input from Italy, Morocco, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon(?), Israel (?). We are also interested into asking local groups, from non Mediterranean countries, to explore their vision and expectations regarding the Euro-Mediterranean relationship. What makes it transnational? Asking the young people about the idea of their counterparts from different countries (to this point at least 3) and how they, if ever, can relate to each other. What would they want to change in the relationship. Other groups can help by filming some short interviews (up to 1.30 min) with young people and by suggesting questions for the discussion in Paris .They could also send a representative to take part at this discussion. Furthermore, they can also organise an event that would explore the idea of Europe/Mediterranean in their community and how they relate to it. Expertise on Euro-mediterranean dialogue + directing short movies We will need financial support for organising the discussion (to rent a room ex.g) and if possible to fly in some participants from other countries.

Media pluralism What is the activity/project called? Where is it based? Describe the activity Freeing media voices Sofia Workshop for people interested in publishing a piece in a newspaper or e-zine: A: discussing pressing issues that need to be addressed, but are often ignored/misinterpreted by the media & deciding one those that could be elaborated in more practical terms; B: creative writing and/or journalistic guidelines (depending on the interest/background) for enhancing the participants’ skills C: drafting/editing the publications & establishing publishing possibilities with media partners Media The aim is to incorporate independent voices in the (problematic) media sources, thereby diversifying it, while also allowing interested citizens to express themselves in a public domain. A number of publications (journalistic, academic, creative-writing) in media sources, preceded by appropriate trainings.

Paris Starting from April 2012 the tool “European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI)” is available at transnational level. The Citizens’ Initiative allows civil society coalitions to collect online or offline one million signatures in at least 7 EU member states to present directly to the European Commission a legislative proposal forming the base of a potential EU Directive. We want to organise a public event and draw the attention of the public to the problems of media monopolists and the political power that stays behind it and that today the civil society has the power and the means to change something. The main goal is to get as many signatures as possible for the EU Directive to protect Media Pluralism and Press Freedom. List keywords/themes the activity relates to Freedom of expression/Free Media (i.e. migration, economy, etc) What will it achieve? Public awareness of the European Citizens Initiative + signatures for the EU Directive What outputs will it deliver (i.e. Campaign for popularising the initiative and call for signatures; public event/publication/campaign/training)? discussion with journalists and activists Will it be a local activity, open to other It will be open for other groups, since the total amount of signatures has to be groups, or a network-wide activity? from at least 7 EU countries.

The requirements of the civil initiative make it a priori transnational Advertising of the campaign and getting signatures so that we can achieve the target. Contacts for more partners, advertising and expertise on the topic.

Corruption What is the activity/project called? Where is it based? Describe the activity List keywords/themes the activity relates to (i.e. migration, economy, etc) What will it achieve? Corruption, incredibly loud, extremely close, but… Prague Forum on the issue of corruption, including: a keynote speech, presentations, group workshops, and a final debate with conclusions. Corruption; rule of law; organised crime; post-communist countries The goal is to raise awareness among Czech citizens about the issue of corruption; although Czechs read everyday about corruption in the newspapers, they don’t really face this issue as citizens. They don’t do anything against it, nor do they seem to feel concerned, as citizens. We would like to make them think and talk about the issue, in particular think about possible solutions at their level. We would like to raise their involvement as conscious citizens in the flight against corruption. Online publication of the key points made during the event; perhaps also publication of a final statement/policy paper. It is a local activity. We invite international speakers and the approach is transnational since the issue itself is not limited to the Czech Republic. Other local groups are involved in helping us finding, or recommending us interesting NGO/experts from their country to take part in our event. We would be happy to get more local groups involved in the preparation of the event, in particular in helping us finding NGOs or experts to invite. We would also like to get some feedback on our event: is it interesting for other local groups? Would they like to organise something similar? Would they like to follow the event through video conference? It is difficult for us to invite speakers, who are not very reactive. Perhaps the reason is that we are not known in Prague. Maybe it would be helpful for EA to intervene here, to give us more weight; but I don’t really know how. We would also be happy if someone from EA could come to the event, for the same reason. We planned the event without any budget; so we don’t require any financial help, though we would welcome it, of course (e.g. it would enable us to invite international speakers to Prague instead of making them participate via video conference). TRANSEUROPA FESTIVAL Valencia The activities that we are planning are: March with other local organisations NGO market FlashMobs on the streets Film screening Art exhibition Music concert Children activities Migration, CIE’s (Detention Centers), democracy, youth participation... Visualize European Alternatives “brand” Create networks with local organisations Raise awareness among youth people and another local communities
