Three stars

On November 8, two members of the citizen jury and Carole Zielinski, deputy for participatory democracy, went to the National Assembly to receive their trophy, in the three-star category. "It is a recognition both for the City of Strasbourg and its employees, who mobilized to make this exercise a success, and for the involvement of the 50 citizens who gave their time and energy in this unprecedented process," says Carole Zielinski.

The 50 members of the jury invested themselves for eight months, from July 2022 to March 2023, to discover the issues related to the Christmas Market and formulate recommendations to Jeanne Barseghian. Most of their wishes were validated by the mayor, and some will already be implemented during the 2023 edition of Strasbourg Capitale de Noël..
