About EUROCHANGEMAKERS project:
EuroChangeMakers (#euroCM) project comes as a response to the current democractic challenges faced in the past months in the context of the COVID19 pandemic. The current pandemic context had a direct impact on the possibility of democratic participation of the citizens. Physical distancing measures remained in place in all EU Member States, including stay-at-home requirements, suspension of mass gatherings, and physical distancing when in public. Such measures affected many fundamental rights, including the rights to liberty and security (Article 6 of the Charter), respect for private and family life (Article 7), freedom of thought, conscience and religion (Article 10), freedom of expression and information (Article 11), freedom of assembly and of association (Article 12), freedom of the arts and sciences (Article 13), and freedom of movement and of residence (Article 45). (FRA, Bulletin 2, 2020). Thus, the upcoming period of 2021-2022 becomes a critical point for the future of the EU where citizens should gather, discuss, reflect, and get involved in critical issues for the European project: digitalization, environment, and social cohesion.
