About the Initiative

The European Capital of Democracy Initiative has built a strong network of Cities fostering participation. Together with citizens, politicians, and institutions we are improving our democracies.

After a most successful start of the first Programme Year in Barcelona 2023/24, the next European Capital of Democracy 2024/25 will be the City of Vienna, opening its doors this November.
