In the occasion of the 25th anniversary of AEIDL (Association Européenne pour l’Information sur le Développement Local), Marjorie Jouen held a speech on 19 February 2014 in Brussels on “Reinventing Europe through local initiative: what are the issues for society and democracy?”

This Tribune is based on her address divided into two main ideas:

  • Europe has reinvented local initiative
  • Europe has to be reinvented through local initiative

Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute is the European think tank founded by Jacques Delors in 1996. Its aim is to produce analyses and proposals targeting European decision-makers and a wider audience, and to contribute to the debate on the European Union.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) also mentioned the conference in the “Territorios Inteligentes” section of its Latin America & Caribbean website.
