Transnational Institute – M2M solidarity. Building municipal to municipal culture of European solidarity
Our Democracy Needs Imagination grantee The Transnational Institute will launch their project M2M solidarity: Building municipal to municipal culture of European solidarity. The project will create peer learning exchanges among local communities in Europe that have transformed their local context experimenting with new forms of democracy rooted in a culture of solidarity.
They will work with local transformative initiatives that have assured access to fundamental rights like water, housing, food and clean energy. The exchanges are aimed at building shared models of a European culture of solidarity, and documenting and publicising these to inspire others.
The project intends to demonstrate that solidarity works to assure everyone’s basic needs are met, regardless of their status as rights-holding citizens or undocumented migrants or refuges. In so doing, it will build a compelling narrative and contribute to a pan-European movement that pushes back against austerity, exclusion and nationalism.
