VIA DEMOCRATIA EUROPA
Strasbourg - Luxembourg - Brussels
European Route of Democracy
- A travel guide -
A cultural itinerary guide describing the "European Route of Democracy" from Strasbourg (legislative) via Luxembourg (judicial) to Brussels (executive). Included are the cities of Saarbrücken, Metz, Trier, Aachen and Maastricht. An e-book will be produced first, followed by the print edition.
The focus is on interesting places and sights along this route, but especially on the description of the European reference of historical places and events as well as the European institutions established today, which are connected by this unique "European Route". The planned route lies in the heart of Europe, passes through border regions of 5 countries and is about 880 km long.
Europe is created through encounters, cross-border mobility and intercultural exchange between people in the border regions and beyond.
The project should contribute to making the European idea and the European political culture "locally" tangible (experienceable).
The association "Via Democratia Europa e. V." develops the content details of the project, takes care of the acquisition of both private and public partners, is the project sponsor for the realisation and supports the public relations work of the "VIA DEMOCRATIA EUROPA".
We would be pleased about your support! Please send us an e-mail if you would like further information, have an idea for an active contribution or can help us with the financing!
The calculated budget for the production of the cultural itinerary guide in three languages is 85.000 EUR. The guide will initially be published as an e-book and will then also be available in printed form from bookstores. The association Via Democratia Europa e. V. is not for profit. Sponsorship money and other income will be used for the realisation as well as for additions and updates of the cultural itinerary guide. Authors, editors, translators and other service providers receive fees. The association only incurs incidental expenses and the costs of public relations.
