The European Human Rights Network of Towns (EUHRENET) aims at involving a wide range of decision-makers, human rights activists and European citizens from different social and professional backgrounds to foster a civic debate and an open dialogue between them, acting to develop sustainable public-private partnerships to counter discrimination and exclusion in Europe. Fostering participatory democracy and human rights, the European Human Rights Network of Towns will be working together with citizens and civil society on inclusive strategies for further development and implementation of local policies based on the EU Charter on Fundamental Rights. We represent as many as 12 towns of 12 different EU countries, supported by associated partners from 3 other EU Member States, and we together stand for diversity and inclusion at local and European levels. With this network, we want to address the growing need to consolidate local resources and hear from the local citizens about their needs and challenges to enjoy their human rights, the project will contribute to the development of new local civic activism groups and networks, promoting human rights, diversity and inclusion.
