Citizens' Agora on the topic of climate change

Apr 30, 2008 / alpMedia
On 12 and 13 June the European Parliament is inviting European civil society to the second citizens' Agora to express its views on the topic of climate change, submit analyses and proposals, and also define its role in future action.

The Agora, which takes place in Brussels, is made up of around 500 invited organisations. Five thematic workshops address a number of cross-sections of topics relating to climate change: Resources, Techniques, Solidarity, Economy and Governance. To involve the general public more effectively in the debate, citizens also have access to a virtual Agora in the form of an internet forum. The internet is widely regarded by EU institutions as a valuable instrument for making their activities more transparent.
The first Agora was set up as a new platform for "dialogue with civil society" to mark the 50th anniversary of the EU. In November 2007 more than 400 representatives of non-governmental organisations were invited to discuss the future of the EU together with representatives of the European bodies.
