Save the date: NECE Conference 2018 – Marseille calling

Marseille, France

06 September at 12:00 am — 08 September at 7:00 pm


NECE 2018 will be held in Marseille in May 2018. For many reasons we have come to the conclusion that a new date for NECE (away from November to May) will be beneficial for organisers and participants alike. And we will have more time this year to take a fresh look at NECE’s potential and redesign aspects of our work and the involvement of the NECE ‘community’ in planning and implementing the conference.

Given the instability and uncertainties we are facing in European and international politics, the importance of France as a key player in Europe and the still undiscovered potential and creativity of French citizenship initiatives we are sure that the conference will attract experts, practitioners and activists not only from Europe but also from the southern side of the Mediterranean with its specials bonds to Marseille. We will try to find a free slot in a wonderful location: Friche La Belle de Mai, is a hub of cultural and artistic activity and a public space embedded in urban Marseille – hard to imagine a better place for a NECE event.

A Save the date message and more information about topics of NECE 2018 will follow within the next weeks. As usual we are happy for your feedback and proposals regarding our conference and our work.
