European Citizens’ Initiative Ambassadors

ECI ambassadors logo

The European Citizens’ Initiative ambassadors contribute to spreading the word about the European Citizens’ Initiative, to fostering debate and to empowering citizens to act on causes they care about.

They come from a wide range of organisations active at European, national or regional level, and they all have something in common – expertise in participatory democracy and a common goal to encourage citizens’ involvement in policy-making.

Meet the ECI Ambassadors at online and offline events and follow them on social media!
