TAKE THE INITIATIVE: the European Citizens’ Initiative as a tool to shape Europe


This event will bring insights on citizens-powered democracy to Vienna for a day of learning, connecting and debating around the European Citizens’ Initiative.

The interactive conference TAKE THE INITIATIVE will be held in the context of #EUTakeTheInitiative, a campaign by the European Commission to raise awareness of the European Citizens’ Initiative as a way for Europeans to have a greater say in the policies that affect their lives.

This event will be a unique opportunity to be among the first ones to learn first-hand what changes the EU will implement to make the European Citizens’ Initiative more user-friendly and easy-to-use.  You will also learn of how to coordinate a successful European citizens’ initiative campaign; and will be invited to pitch your own idea of an initiative and look for innovative activities, tools and partnerships to turn it into a campaign with an impact.   

When?  Thursday 13 December 2018, 9h30-17h00

Where? in the Haus der Europäischen Union in Vienna, Austria
