The first European Citizens’ Panels have started. Even if only a temporary experiment in transnational democratic participation, so far: citizens have been taking over European institutions in real life!
The oppression experienced by many marginalised communities, which lies at the root of many of Europe’s pressing social and political problems, should not be exacerbated in a free and democratic exercise overseen by EU leadership.

Is citizen-led democracy here to stay?
Tourists are flying into space and life on Mars seems a less distant possibility. Meanwhile Europeans are busy trying to create a buzz about our future here on earth.
In the context of the international event Between Land and Sea in Palermo, we are organising a transnational citizens assembly to avoid climate disaster in cooperation with Sicily and Tunis.
After a short summer break the Assemblies of Solidarity are back into action. This new chapter has landed in Romania, more specifically in the city of Constanta on the shores of the Black sea. The Assembly of Solidarity focused on climate change issues and was co-organised in collaboration with Eco Dobrogea and 2 Celsius.

First Plenary of the CoFoE: we need better inclusivity
We came together in Strasbourg while the Plenary is kicking off to reclaim our space as citizens & residents in the debate about the future of Europe! We call on to the executive board to develop a strategy of inclusion in relation to the #Conference to ensure that marginalised communities are adequately represented and involved in the Conference.
