By Decision 1904/2006/EC of 12 December 2006 the European Parliament and the Council adopted the 'Europe for Citizens Programme' for the period 2007-2013, which put into place the legal framework to support a wide range of activities and organisations promoting ‘active European citizenship' and therefore the involvement of citizens and civil society organisations in the process of European integration.
The Europe for Citizens Programme builds on the experience of the previous Programme which ran from 2004 to 2006. The current Programme was proposed by the Commission after a large consultation with the different stakeholders and an ‘ex ante’ evaluation, which has identified the need for an intervention at Community level and the expected impact of the Programme on the sector. Thanks to these experiences and reflections, this Programme of second generation demonstrates a certain level of maturity, combining continuity and innovation.
The Programme will run from 2007 to 2013.

The Programme is targeting ‘European’ citizens, which includes for the purpose of this Programme citizens of EU-Member States, citizens of other participating countries as well as legal residents in the participating countries.

Measure 1.2 Networks of Twinned Towns

Specific features

Local authorities are regularly confronted with new issues and are involved in the implementation of a variety of policies, which are often linked to policy developments taken at European level. The networking between municipalities on issues of common interest appears to be an important means for enabling informed discussions and exchange of good practices. Twinning is a strong link that binds municipalities; therefore, the potential of the networks created by a series of town twinning links should be used for developing thematic and long-lasting cooperation between towns. The Commission supports the development of such networks, which are important for ensuring structured, intense and multifaceted cooperation, therefore contributing to maximizing the impact of the Programme.

Networks of Twinned Towns’ projects are expected to:

Integrate a range of activities around the subject(s) of common interest to be addressed in the context of the Programme‟s priorities and having relevance for European integration; Produce communication tools in the context of these events with the aim of promoting structured and sustainable thematic networking and disseminating the results of the actions; Have defined target groups for which the selected themes are particularly relevant and involve community members active in the subject area (i.e. experts, local associations, citizens and citizens‟ groups directly affected by the theme, etc.); Serve as a basis for future initiatives and actions between the towns involved, on the issues addressed or possibly on further issues of common interest.
