Citizen Summits

February 2019

About this event

In February 2019, two citizen summits, funded by People to People-Interreg-EMR, will be organised to collect the Citizen’s view on health.

Using a World Café Setting, citizens of the Euregion Meuse-Rhine (EMR) are invited to share their view on the 3 main topics of the conference: “Equity”, “Participatory Approach” and “Human Resources for health”.

The outcome of these citizen summits will be used as input during the Conference on health  held in June, with professionals from all over Europe.
