Editor in charge/Jacopo Franchi/ 10 cities, 10 special city editions of feature reports, 10 local debates: We're continuing our series of monthly reporting missions to a different city in our Europe-wide network, this year with a special focus on multiculturalism in Europe. You can read the articles our citizen journalists have produced already here.

Step 1: what’s it about

WHAT IS IT: In 2011 we launch our monthly editorial series - ‘MULTIKULTI on the ground’ - which aims to raise consciousness on the issue of multiculturalism and variety of cultures in Europe.

TO DO WHAT: Valorising local, young projects, ideas, stories, initiatives and angles that have emerged from multicultural preoccupations. Be ‘on the ground’ and make us feel you’ve been hanging out and working in Strasbourg. Be rather “gonzo” than “institutional”. Spend time with locals, describe what you saw/ felt/ learned from them. Be critical - ‘MULTIKULTI’ isn’t an ideology for!
