- Citizens have no say in EU politics?! That belongs to the past with the #EuropeanHomeParliaments.
To participate, you invite your friends or family to talk about a political topic – this time #EUSolidarity. This can take place online or at your homes or a public place. The citizen movement @PulseofEurope provides material to facilitate the debate. After you finished talking, you are asked to collect some key results, which you punch in on the platform. Find out more on homeparliaments.eu or watch the video here.
Follow #HomeParliaments and #EuropeanHomeParliaments to find out what European politicians including Commission president Ursula von der Leyen, Polish Łukasz Kohut and many others do with the results of your discussions.
“We are happy to support a great project by the pro-European citizens’ movement Pulse of Europe e.V. With the European HomeParliaments citizens from different countries in Europe are able to participate in EU politics from their kitchen tables, cafés or their living rooms. After
successful implementation in the years 2018 and 2019, they now enter the 3rd round. Until 2 November 2020, all interested citizens have the opportunity to organise private round tables on the “future of European solidarity”. This can take place at home, in a café, via video call with the family, friends or acquaintances. The results of the private round table discussions will then be passed on directly to EU policy makers. They take a stand on the wishes and suggestions of the HomeParliamentarian s thus feeding into their political actions! Among others, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and other EU politicians from five different
countries will participate. To hold your own European HomeParliament, all you need is an interest in European politics, about two hours of time and the fun of a lively discussion. Anyone who is interested in taking
part simply registers online as a host of a HomeParliament. You will then be provided with all the necessary materials for preparation.
