ECI DAY 2018: Working Together

Following the new European Commission proposal of September 2017, the European citizens' initiative has new wind in its sales. It now faces a lot of changes, many of which may greatly simplify administrative and organizational burdens. These changes will soon be discussed in the three-way consultations between the Commission, the European Parliament and the Council.

The ECI DAY 2018 will seize the moment and offer a first-hand insight into the positions of the three legislators, represented respectively by the First Vice-President of the European Commission Frans Timmermans, the European Parliament general rapporteur György Schöpflin and the Council Trio ministers from Estonia, Bulgaria and Austria.

We will also offer the participants a closer look at the following ECI-related subjects:

The ECI Online Collaborative Platform: Supporting the ECI Community! – a European Commission pilot project to offer support and advice on the organisation of European citizens' initiatives.
Pioneering participation: The Reform of the ECI as a starting point for a more participatory European Union.
ECItizen: Building synergies between the four recent ECIs addressing EU citizenship in order to contribute to expanding the debate on EU citizenship.
