The European Citizens’ Initiative: Sweden in Focus

Discover and engage a tool to carry your ideas across the EU!

Discover and engage a tool to carry your ideas across the EU!

Do you want to discover how you can make an impact at EU-level on issues that you care about?

Join us to learn more about the unique possibilities the European Citizens’ Initiative tool offers for citizen participation and participatory democracy in Europe.

We will cover how the Initiative works and how people can get involved – and co-create a participatory space to connect, exchange and understand the support network available to initiative organisers.

The 2-hr event takes place online and focusses on a Swedish audience. 

Starting with a panel discussion, speakers will contextualise and highlight the European Citizens’ Initiative in today’s context where various participatory tools are available at local, national and European level. An overview of the process will be given, including where and how initiative organisers can get peer-based and professional support to successfully manage their initiative.
In the second part of the event, ECI initiative organisers and an ECI Forum expert will share their experience and tips and tricks on how best to undertake an ECI.  

The event will close with a spotlight on Swedish organisers who have organised participatory democracy initiatives in the Swedish context. Stay tuned until the end of the event to discover initiatives in your country and to get inspired by the stories of your fellow citizens acting for a change in Swedish society!
