"The aim of your initiative, namely to reinforce the spirit of solidarity, social ties, and mutual assistance among citizens, while promoting good relationships between neighbours, intercultural dialogue and social cohesion in urban areas, is greatly appreciated by the European Parliament. Our institution is convinced that citizens occupy a key position at the heart of the European project and they are its main players and beneficiaries. Activities that put common European values at their core help to strengthen social ties and to form active and resposible citizens. It is, therefore, with great pleasure that I grant your initiative the European Parliament's high patronage."
President of the European Parliament
