European Citizens’ Initiative 2.0: Design, Engage, Impact
  Brussels, BE Conference


This event is organised by the European Commission, with the participation of other EU institutions and advisory bodies, as well as civil society organisations.Building on the positive momentum of recent years, the European Union is leveraging the update of the European Citizens’ Initiative to further raise awareness and the possibilities it offers for European citizens to design their own initiatives, engage in policy-making, and have a real impact on agenda setting at the EU level.

By bringing together all European Citizens’ Initiative stakeholders, this event offers everybody with a stake in participatory democracy the opportunity to share their experiences and discuss their ideas on how best to spread the word and increase awareness of the European Citizens’ Initiative. We all have a role to play as ambassadors of the European Citizens’ Initiative, and we need to work together to increase citizen involvement in EU decision-making.
