EUROPEAN CITIZENS' INITIATIVE WEEK: COR PROPOSES CITIZEN ENGAGEMENT IN THE EU NETWORK (CITIZEN) AS A SPRINGBOARD FOR THE EUROPEAN CITIZENS' INITIATIVES

(AGENPARL) – BRUXELLES, mer 18 novembre 2020

On 16 November CoR member Declan McDonnell, Member of Galway City Council (IE/EA) kicked off together with other institutional representatives the European Citizens’ Initiative Week organised by the European Commission. He stressed that the European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) facilitates and underpins CoR’s political priority of bringing Europe closer to its people. The CoR is committed to supporting ECIs which fall into its political remits and which are deemed politically relevant for local and regional authorities. Such initiatives could be discussed at the CoR Plenary sessions. They could also be integrated in the CitizEN – Citizen Engagement in the EU Network – a tool proposed by the European Committee of the Regions which aims at involving citizens in policy-making.
