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.
The ECI Campaign is nearly as old as the ECI instrument itself. It was launched in 2004 by engaged citizens, including those activists who had already successfully campaigned for the introduction of the ECI during the European Constitutional Convention in 2002/03. Since then the network has been gradually growing. Today, The ECI Campaign is a grassroots coalition of concerned citizens, pro-democracy activists and over 100 European NGOs dedicated to the creation and campaigner-friendly implementation of a European Citizens’ Initiative right.
