EU politics needs citizen participation
Invite friends and acquaintances round and get involved in a lively discussion about the political decision-making process on the future of Europe. From 19 September to 1 November 2020.
What are European HomeParliaments?
With the European HomeParliaments we want to enable civil society commitment to Europe right there where opinions are first formed: at the kitchen table, when eating together with friends and acquaintances – simply at home or in a café, in the park or at your regular get-together.
HomeParliaments offer an innovative and effective method of civil participation that serves to improve legislative processes through a coordinated exchange of information between voters and political decision-makers. Anyone who is interested and has a constructive opinion on European policy issues can participate and influence political decisions.
This process is therefore particularly suited to connecting the citizens of the European Union and the political decision-makers in Brussels in a constructive way. This is how citizens can contribute on a small scale to the big picture.
Join in and organise
A HomeParliament is where 4 to 8 people meet up to discuss and then answer a given European question. Pulse of Europe provides all the necessary material, as well as input for different lines of argument.
From now on, the European HomeParliaments can also be organised via video link.Become a hostl
