You are invited to sign in at web www.connectingeuropeans.eu and to show the European flag in some way at the Town Hall on the last Thursday of July – 28/07/2016. The idea is coming from the Finnish town Joensuu: to have a spontaneous European day at grass-root level to support the idea of being European – but not taking statement about institutions or geographical borders of Europe.
Raise the European flag above every town hall or display it in any way possible and then share a picture on your city web pages and in social media!
