Citizen Consultation on Europe

March 21st, 2009 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

Across the EU this weekend groups of citizens are debating the question ‘What do you think the EU can – and should – do to shape our economic and social future in a globalised world?’ In Dublin Castle 50 independently selected Irish Citizens are debating questions set by facilitators and using ‘deliberative polling’ to come to conclusions. These conclusions will be put to MEP’s tomorrow and also taken to an summit of citizens taking place in Brussels in May.

The Irish consultation is organised by the National Forum on Europe and funded by a number of private foundations and the European Commission and you can watch it all online on RTE Live.
