22 June, 2014 – 08:00 to 24 June, 2014 – 17:00
The activity – “tour” consisting of altogether three “European Café” debates – took place as a part of the “Widening the European Dialogue in Moldova” project that had an ambition to contribute to the efforts aimed at increasing the public support for EU integration in Moldova. The project was financially supported by SlovakAid.
The objective of the “tour” (the first one of altogether three “tours”) was to bring the debate on the EU-related issues closer to the general public, particularly in the regions outside of Chisinau, and provide the people with objective, fact-based information and arguments in order to increase their awareness and knowledge on those topics, where currently lack of information, misinformation, fears and myths prevail.
