How does it work?
Members of the dialogue may contribute ideas in the form of single-sentence statements, and subsequently add a paragraph as clarification. Members can also shoot short videos right from their device and upload a lively clarification to the cloud for others to consider. The dialogue will be in effect from the 1st of October until the 14th of October. The ideas will be presented during the International Citizens Forum which will take place at 15th – 17th of October in Nicosia, as a part of the EU co-funded project Let's get Active.
