On the occasion of the European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) fifth anniversary, this year’s ECI day will be devoted to the many success stories directly linked to European Citizenship, as well as the kind of policy-making that engages citizens. It will also identify where democratic deficits lie.
Before the participatory panels kick off, I will have the pleasure to give the keynote speech, which will look at the evolution of citizen participation in Europe in the past 60 years.
The event’s full programme is available here.
You can watch the conference on the dedicated livestream starting from 9 am and/or follow it on Twitter via #ECIday2017.
