Brussels, 10 February 2024 – Registrations now open!
We’re thrilled to extend a warm invitation to you for our upcoming in-person European Citizens Deliberation on the Green Transition, organised by the REAL DEAL.
Entitled, ‘Towards a European Pact for the Future – Charting the Next Steps in Our Ecological Transition’, the first event will focus on the future of the European Green Deal. It will take place in person in Brussels on Saturday 10 February 2024.
People in your network are warmly invited to join citizens from all over Europe to come together in Brussels, the heart of Europe, for one and a half days of lively discussions. In an innovative EU-wide deliberation run by professional facilitators, we welcome you to discuss the future of the European Grean Deal – Europe’s plan to decarbonise and become a climate neutral continent by 2050. By taking part in this unique discussion in your personal capacity as a citizen, you will have the chance to deliberate with others on the future direction of the ecological transition in Europe, participating in different themed focus groups such as the transforming the food and energy system, changing our economy, and protecting biodiversity.
Co-organised by the EEB and partners within the framework of the REAL_DEAL project, this discussion is part of a Horizon 2020 research project focused on reshaping citizens participation and deliberative democracy in Europe. By conducting such a deliberation, we aim to explore new formats to bring underrepresented voices to the forefront of policy making. These formats will form a part of the discussions during the event, and we hope that the insights can galvanise decision makers to consider new modes of deliberative democracy at EU (European Union) level, as well as propel the ideas of participants into the spotlight for future policymaking. To tackle the great challenges of our time, we need a wide-ranging and inclusive dialogue, therefore we are happy to welcome you to join the conversation.
You are invited to take part in the deliberation in your capacity as a citizen. For more information on this exciting event, you can visit the Real Deal website here. Register to attend the event here:
