OUR REFORM PROPOSALS TO ENSURE THAT THE ECI WORKS FOR ALL EU CITIZENS
Ensure that all EU citizens can support an ECI – wherever they live.
Reduce and harmonise personal data requirements across member states.
Eliminate ID number requirements.
Lower the age of ECI support to 16.
Redesign the online signature collection system (OCS).
Collect e-mail address within the main ECI support form.
Lengthen the signature collection time to 18 months.
Give ECI campaigns time to prepare: let them choose their launch date.
Provide a support infrastructure for ECIs with legal advice, translation and funding.
Provide an EU legal status for ECI citizens’ committees.
Modify the first legal admissibility check.
Increase public and media awareness of the ECI.
The ECI Campaign is an organization exclusively working for the successful introduction and implementation of the European Citizens’ Initiative right – the world’s first tool of participatory, transnational and digital democracy. We are independent, neutral in policy, non-profit and non-EU financed. Our work is carried by the invaluable input of volunteers, like-minded partners, donors and a small coordination team.
