Citizens, Europe can’t exist without you!
WeEuropeans is a civic and non-partisan campaign aimed at mobilising the citizens of all the countries of the European Union to take back control of the European project.
Crises everywhere are leading people to look inwards and withdraw into themselves. Mistrust of Europe is taking root at a time when, now more than ever, what we need is to work together to ensure that we create the conditions for a positive future for everyone. Citizens feel like they’re no longer in control of their destiny and that history is being written without them. But it’s us, the citizens of the European Union, who are Europe and who will build Europe. It’s up to us to act and to show a way forward.
That’s why we’re calling on all the citizens of Europe to take part in this citizen consultation, so that we can write a new page in our history together. Take part in the biggest European public consultation ever carried out! A civic and democratic leap forward.
Each European will be able to participate in it by responding to the question “What are the steps we can take to reinvent Europe?” and by voting on the proposals that he or she deems to be the most relevant. Public consultations will be held simultaneously in each European country. A vote involving all European citizens will then be planned on the proposals that were the most popular during the first round.
On 22 March 2019, following this consultation, the proposals that won the approval of Europeans will be presented to the European Parliament in the form of a Citizens’ Agenda during a Congress of Europeans. We will ask political leaders, candidates in the European elections and heads of state and government to respond to the shared concerns of their fellow citizens.
Europe can’t happen without you.
