Municipalist movements from all over Europe gathered in the Serbian capital in June 2019 to exchange ideas and plan a common strategy against deeply entrenched political structures in their home countries in the fifth Fearless Cities summit. How municipalist movements can help shape the future of European politics was the main topic of discussion in Belgrade. Environmental justice and the feminization of politics within a global context were also topics addressed.
The event was also a chance for individuals from all over the Balkans, including North Macedonia, Albania and Croatia, to discuss the rise of local movements in their respective countries, and whether these movements actually have the potential to affect real change.
