TheMayor.EU – the European Portal for Cities and Citizens- aims to enhance the understanding and cohesion between the citizens of the European Union, the local authorities and EU institutions. Their goal is to inform about good practices on a local, regional and European Union level, by honouring the work of local authorities. In 2021 TheMayor.EU won the European Parliament’s “European Citizen’s Prize” for its work in promoting the European values of transparency, cross-border cooperation and good governance at the local level.
Their article “Famalicão lets the youngest create the future thanks to MyMachine initiative” celebrates the work of MyMachine Portugal. MyMachine Portugal started in the city of Obidos but has -guided by Ana Sofia Godinho- gradually grown into many participating schools throughout all of Portugal, including the city of Famalicão.
Thank you so much to all students, educators, and other stakeholders involved in MyMachine Portugal!
