Now the Citizens Campaign 2019


Ahead of the European elections in 2019, Democracy International ran the Now The Citizens campaign which called for more citizens’ participation in EU decision-making, including the introduction of randomly-selected citizens’ assemblies to develop concrete suggestions for Europe’s democratic future.

There is a real and rare opportunity that the Conference on the Future of Europe may include exactly this, with citizens' "agoras" that are tasked with discussing specific topics related to Europe’s future in order to re-evaluate Europe’s priorities. As part of the Citizens Take Over Europe coalition, we are ensuring that a Europe for the citizens is not only a political promise, but also becomes a reality.
