After the first British victory of the Second World War at El Alamein, Churchill wrote to his foreign secretary, Anthony Eden, on 21 October 1942: ‘Hard as it is to say now.. I look forward to a United States of Europe, in which the barriers between the nations will be greatly minimised and unrestricted travel will be possible.’
We at CRN are proud to work on the visions of the many and not the few, creating a Europe, where civil society can thrive and European citizens can move, exchange ideas and create innovative solutions together.
We are continuing to work on this visions with all our partners within the EU, but as well in all the other countries. We will not stop to reach out, might it be to Ukraine, the Balkans or now our friends in UK.
We know some of you want to go your own way, some of you want to return one day, some of you don’t want to leave at all - we don’t know the path you will take, all we can tell you is, we will be here for you, exchanging knowledge, create social change and maybe one day realize the vision Churchill hoped for in the mist of the war.
We are actively involved in scientific research, education and training that link the realm of ideas with everyday experience.

CRN PARTIcipatory lab launched
Participation is a crucial step for active citizenship. Placemaking, digital literacy, neighborhood involvement and civic education are among the multiple elements through wich CRN is contributing to teaching and empowering participatory processes.
Currently, in order to bring together in a systemic way all these elements of our activity, CRN is building a Horizontal Participatory Lab, for developing scientifc research, organising conferences and workshops, editing divers publications and last but not least developing learning methods, games and other tools for empowering active citizenship. One of our first activities is the constitution of a European Participatory Map summarizing all the good practices gathered so far.
