The ECI: more impact, simpler rules!

28-01-2016

2016 is a key year for the future of the European Citizens' Initiative (ECI): the European Commission is revising the current regulation, various stakeholders have identified the major problems and made appropriate recommendations and now the European and Economic Social Committee (EESC) has decided to draw up an own-initiative opinion to present civil society's views on the ECI and participatory democracy.

Capitalising on this strategic opportunity, the EESC will hold a public hearing on the revision of the ECI.

The aim of the hearing is to present, discuss and collect arguments to feed into the EESC opinion on the ECI in areas such as the ECI's impact and validation process, simplification of the rules, the existing political limits to participatory democracy at European level and the role of the EU institutions and Member States in the ECI process.

Date: 22 February 2016

Time: 14.30 - 17.30 o'clock

Venue: EESC, Brussels, Room JDE 60

Registration via the website of the EESC here
