ECI Day 2018

ECI DAY 2018: Working Together


At the ECI Day 2017, First Vice-President of the European Commission Frans Timmermans announced the long-awaited revision of the instrument. The European Commission proposal for a new regulation followed soon after and it materialised in September 2017 as part of a priority package accompanying the State of the Union. The ECI is now going through a very dynamic period of being redefined and reshaped, and it faces a lot of changes soon to be discussed in the three-way consultations between the Commission, the European Parliament and the Council. Join us at the 2018 ECI Day to find out where the European Citizens' Initiative is headed.

Will a much simplified procedure for registering initiatives and gathering support help boost citizens' interest in the tool? What form should the new roles for each of the institutional and civil society stakeholders take in order to increase the political impact of the ECIs? The ECI Day 2018 will be an excellent opportunity to discuss these priorities and our theme, Working Together, is intended to underline the value of cooperation and the shared responsibility for promoting active citizenship.

When? 10 April 2018

Where? EESC building
Rue Belliard/Belliardstraat 99
1040 Brussels
