European Citizens’ Initiatives (ECIs) A case for orientation or re-orientation?
On Tuesday March 19th, ECAS, Democracy Europe, the EESC and the Committee of Regions are organising the fourth event "European Citizens’ Initiatives (ECIs) A case for orientation or re-orientation?"
This seminar continues the series of events which presented and evaluated the state of play with ECIs since their early beginning (the reports of the 1st and 2nd Annual Conference are enclosed). This seminar will take place just before the anniversary of the ECI regulation’s coming into force and it will set the discussion for a bigger conference in the EESC on the 9th of April. Furthermore, the event will produce some concrete recommendations for the 9th of April conference.
The focus will therefore mainly be on the assessment of this year while giving special attention to measures needed for the creation of supportive citizens’ initiative infrastructure and to the immediate and practical solutions which would allow for the success of current ECIs. What actions are needed to popularise and to encourage support for ECIs for which the clock is ticking? How can we address the immediate and practical improvements for the potential revision of the ECI regulation in 2015? And how can we place this new, transnational right in the broader context of the European Year of Citizens during which the conference will take place?
