European Citizens’ Consultations

Make sure people’s voice reach governments and policy-makers! 40 Maltese citizens will be taking part in the biggest ever pan-European consultation-debate over the future of the European Union.

A random selection of 40 Maltese citizens will participate in this consultation exercise on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th of March 2007 at the Radisson SAS Golden Sands Resort & Spa.

This event is designed to ensure that the public’s voice is heard by governments and policy-makers in the current debate over the EU’s future.

The conference is part of a series of events organised at national level in all EU countries in February and March.

Participants will discuss three main topics: energy and the environment, family and social welfare, and Europe’s global role and immigration.

200 citizens from across Europe, of whom 8 were Maltese citizens, met last October to identify and discuss what kind of Europe they want as well as the issues that most matter to them. Topics being discussed at the ‘European Citizens’ Consultations’ were set during this meeting.

The results of all the national consultations will be presented to EU policy-makers ahead of the EU Summit in June when the future of the Constitutional Treaty will be discussed.

The European Citizens’ Consultations are funded and organised by an independent consortium of foundations and non-profit organisations from all over Europe and are led by the King Baudouin Foundation. It is co-sponsored by the European Commission’s communication strategy “Plan D”.

Fondazzjoni Temi Zammit is organising the consultations in Malta in collaboration with Forum Malta fl-Ewropa.
