Mediterranean route

Migration and Borders

[Italy – Slovenia – Croatia]

The most important challenges of our times escape the borders of nation states. Racism, xenophobia and hate crimes do not understand national barriers and their impact surpasses state borders. In a period in which it is becoming more and more complicated to escape national borders, European citizens need to mobilise transnationally, starting from their local realities, from the violation of human rights they witness in their neighbourhoods and communities. We need a transnational coordination able to sum up the plurality of citizen forces, capable of campaigning and organising over all those issues that require European-level action. The activists engaged in this route will travel across three European countries where EU and Non EU migrants are  already inhabiting across borders world, moving from one country to other.

Cities of Solidarity

[France – Spain – Portugal]

Cities are the scene of resistance and innovation, often in terms of spontaneous ruptures: the place where social protests erupt and mutual cooperation unfolds, where street mobilisations and processes of cultural creation and productive innovation emerge. The European Commission has recently stressed the leading role of cities and metropolitan areas and the need for stronger coordination and exchange between them. More than 70% of Europeans live in urban areas, where 75% of energy consumption and 80% of emissions are also concentrated, placing them at the core of the environmental crisis. Precisely in such a critical context, cities – as was the case in crucial moments of transition in European history – can play again a leading role. The Western route is going to travel to meet city representatives and citizens’ initiatives in order to promote the exchange of best-practices between governments and activists, and raise awareness of the importance that cities play in the international arena.

Civic spaces are an extension of the civil society, and when they function freely, they serve as a platform for our public, social and political lives. If they function properly and without restrictions, they can be the settings where social and political change can happen. Across the globe, governments are shutting down spaces for civic and political engagement. The closing of civic space is not just about people’s right to organize or protest in individual countries. With the Central Eastern route, we are going to travel across three countries where activists and civil society are suffering the harsher consequences of illiberal and neo-fascist democracies. Ahead of the European elections, we are going to travel to meet the movements and citizens that are organising to resist and confront the rise of these dangerous tendencies.

Baltic route

Sustainability and Climate Change

[Sweden – Finland – Estonia – Latvia]

European integration transformed the Baltic Sea from a frontier into a shared Mare Nostrum between the Nordic and Baltic countries of the Union, the only ones above 55° latitude at Europe’s northern tip. On the one hand, Nordic countries share vast uninhabited landscapes and relatively small populations with a long-standing tradition of care for the environment: they recycle, prefer public transport and bicycles and see the nature as a public good that needs to be protected. They demonstrate global leadership in the fight against climate change by aiming to be carbon-neutral in the near future and lead in renewables – housing the world’s biggest solar plant and for example. On the other hand, the struggle for energetic independence of the Baltic states has been emblematic of their broader quest for emancipation from the Soviet past and embracing the common European future. The key to achieving it has been found in diversity. How does the ‘green’ dimension of European citizenship blend with its other colors? What are the legal, social and geopolitical challenges all these countries face and the lessons to be learnt from their pioneering journey away from an anthropocentric worldview? How do mobile EU citizens in these countries see their lives and democratic role in squaring the circle between these processes? These are the questions that will guide the caravan on the Baltic route. In two weeks, four brave and adventurous European citizens will explore the roads to sustainable European integration looking for ways to keep the doors equally open for all citizens and their environment.

In a period in which it is becoming more and more complicated to escape national borders, European citizens need to mobilise transnationally, starting from their local realities, from the violation of human rights they witness in their neighbourhoods and communities. We need a transnational coordination able to sum up the plurality of citizen forces, capable of campaigning and organising over all those issues that require European-level action. The activists engaged in this route will travel across three European countries where EU and Non EU migrants are  already inhabiting across borders world, moving from one country to other.

Cities of Solidarity

[France – Spain – Portugal]

Cities are the scene of resistance and innovation, often in terms of spontaneous ruptures: the place where social protests erupt and mutual cooperation unfolds, where street mobilisations and processes of cultural creation and productive innovation emerge. The European Commission has recently stressed the leading role of cities and metropolitan areas and the need for stronger coordination and exchange between them. More than 70% of Europeans live in urban areas, where 75% of energy consumption and 80% of emissions are also concentrated, placing them at the core of the environmental crisis. Precisely in such a critical context, cities – as was the case in crucial moments of transition in European history – can play again a leading role. The Western route is going to travel to meet city representatives and citizens’ initiatives in order to promote the exchange of best-practices between governments and activists, and raise awareness of the importance that cities play in the international arena.

Baltic route

Sustainability and Climate Change

[Sweden – Finland – Estonia – Latvia]

European integration transformed the Baltic Sea from a frontier into a shared Mare Nostrum between the Nordic and Baltic countries of the Union, the only ones above 55° latitude at Europe’s northern tip. On the one hand, Nordic countries share vast uninhabited landscapes and relatively small populations with a long-standing tradition of care for the environment: they recycle, prefer public transport and bicycles and see the nature as a public good that needs to be protected. They demonstrate global leadership in the fight against climate change by aiming to be carbon-neutral in the near future and lead in renewables – housing the world’s biggest solar plant and for example. On the other hand, the struggle for energetic independence of the Baltic states has been emblematic of their broader quest for emancipation from the Soviet past and embracing the common European future. The key to achieving it has been found in diversity. How does the ‘green’ dimension of European citizenship blend with its other colors? What are the legal, social and geopolitical challenges all these countries face and the lessons to be learnt from their pioneering journey away from an anthropocentric worldview? How do mobile EU citizens in these countries see their lives and democratic role in squaring the circle between these processes? These are the questions that will guide the caravan on the Baltic route. In two weeks, four brave and adventurous European citizens will explore the roads to sustainable European integration looking for ways to keep the doors equally open for all citizens and their environment.

Civic spaces under pressure

[Germany – Austria – Hungary]

Civic spaces are an extension of the civil society, and when they function freely, they serve as a platform for our public, social and political lives. If they function properly and without restrictions, they can be the settings where social and political change can happen. Across the globe, governments are shutting down spaces for civic and political engagement. The closing of civic space is not just about people’s right to organize or protest in individual countries. With the Central Eastern route, we are going to travel across three countries where activists and civil society are suffering the harsher consequences of illiberal and neo-fascist democracies. Ahead of the European elections, we are going to travel to meet the movements and citizens that are organising to resist and confront the rise of these dangerous tendencies.
