We, the members of the association Via Democratia Europa, are convinced Europeans who have set ourselves the goal of creating and actively promoting the "European Route of Democracy".
This route is intended to become a synonym and symbol of the cultural identity on which the unity of the European Union and its democratic separation of powers is based. Using the example of places, events and stories along the axis Strasbourg - Luxembourg - Brussels, the roots should become clear and the achievements of the people who - also in their everyday lives - have ensured the development of a community as we know the European Union today.
Via Democratia Europa e. V. is dependent on the financial support of sponsors. Through a voluntary commitment by the association, at least 85% of the funds will go directly into the production of the e-book- and print-versions of the multilingual cultural travel guide. A maximum of 15 % will be used for advertising and administrative costs and other incidental expenses.
