Mobile Dialogue

A city prospers when citizens share a sense of

ownership and responsibility for its future,

when their important role in its development

is recognized and validated.

It is not only the right but also the duty of citizens in a democracy to stay informed and express their views. Each and every perspective is significant as it allows us to understand the general will of the people and move forward with a unified voice.
