Are you planning to launch a European citizens’ initiative, or are you currently promoting one? Or perhaps you are simply interested in discussing potential citizens’ initiatives?

This platform is a space for you to get practical information and advice about the European citizens’ initiative, and to discuss any topics related to it.

It is not the place to register an initiative or to consult the list of registered initiatives. For any of this, you should  visit the  European citizens’ initiative official register , which also provides information on the legislative and procedural framework.

This site is a pilot project, operated by a consortium of three organisations – ESN, ECAS and CARSA – on behalf of and under contract to the European Commission.
