ECF has been at the forefront of fighting for an EU closer to its citizens. By sharing and promoting good practice examples of citizen engagement and participatory governance, we contribute to local and EU policy. Our advocacy work has focused on bringing culture closer to the heart of EU politics.

On 13 September, the President of the European Commission (EC) Jean Claude Junker gave the State of the Union Address 2017.  In his speech announced the strategic directions of the EC for the coming year.

How does this relate to ECF's work?
