This event will help you understand what the European Citizens' Initiative (ECI) is and when it can prove relevant. Starting with a panel discussion, speakers will place the ECI in the context of the various participatory tools that are available at the local, national, and European level.

ECI initiative organisers and an ECI Forum expert will share their experience of dealing with initiatives and give participants some useful tips and tricks on how best to undertake an ECI. Irish organisers who have been involved in similar initiatives in Ireland will also share their experiences and advice as regards active citizenship in Ireland and the EU.

The event will allow you to engage with active citizens, EC representatives, ECI ambassadors and organisers who have experienced the ECI and democratic processes within Ireland.
