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 to counter discrimination and exclusion in Europe. Fostering participatory democracy and human rights, EUHRENET works 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. With this network, we address the growing need to consolidate local resources and hear from citizens about their needs and challenges to enjoy human rights, the project will contribute to the development of new local civic activism groups and networks, promoting human rights, diversity and inclusion.
