While our general aim is to get citizens getting more decision-making power about public transport and sustainable mobility in Europe, we want to reach this goal by implementing a series of projects, each of them being one little step closer to success. Here are the current projects we are involved in. Note : These projects are not being carried only our by our small team, but in coordination with partner organisations.

EuropeForCitizens
 
“Move On” was a candidate for the “Europe for Citizens” program, submitted in June 2013, and narrowly missed short listing (evaluation score of 70, while acceptance was at 71). It gathered a partnership of 10 organizations from all over Europe. Its goal was to show how the European Union impacts any public transport system today, and the role we can play, as citizens, in the relevant European policies. It also proposed a series of coordination tools between federations, sharing information, and creating easier communication, so that the citizen has a better framework for linking its local situation to the European context. A further result of the project has been to create new connections between a series of partners.
 
Status : It will be resubmitted to the next call of the Europe for Citizens program.  
 
EuropeForCitizens
 
We are many people and organizations that are involved on local and national issues impacting our everyday life : the quality of public services, the quality of our local environment, social inequalities that we experience, and so on. Generally, we try to solve these local issues by adressing the local context (as the city or regional government) or the national context (the national government, the national regulation).
 
Unfortunately, these contexts are often not the right level anymore to solve these problems, as the real stakes have moved to European level. But European policies are more difficult to address, due to the extra distance we have from decision makers, language obstacles and institutional complexity.
 
This project aims to help a series of civic networks to better interact with this European context.
 
Status : We are waiting for the answer to Europe for Citizens (submitted March 2015)
 
 
A European project on the protection of personal data in public transport.
 
Status : Submitted in March 2014, waiting the European Commission's answer mid-August.
