Idea pitch

Do you believe the citizens are represented when it comes to the decision and policy making processes of the EU? We believe there is room for improvement in that direction and we're developing an innovative way to contribute to that connection, starting where we feel the ground is ready to put this idea into action, the Eurozone! We're developing the Euroland Agora, a blended mechanism of representation of Euroland citizens. Support us in the invention of 21st century's transnational democracy!

Where does your idea take place?

Athens, Greece

Why does Europe need your idea?

There is an inadequate connection between the European citizens and the decision and policy making processes that impact their everyday lives, especially when it comes to the Eurozone. What if we could bridge that gap with a smart combination of modern technologies and residential assemblies?

What is your impact?

If the projects succeeds, one year from now there will have been at least 10.000 citizens from at least 10 different countries of the Eurozone that will have successfully developed and advocated for citizens-led policy changes for a better Eurozone, through our platform!

How do you get there?

One year of online community development, increasing our base and our reach to enough citizens of Eurozone to make the platform representative, especially when it comes to the under-represented youth, through a structured dialogue process that aims at meaningful, citizens-led policy development. Then, come spring 2019, right before the European Parliament elections, we'll be ready to host our first assembly in Athens and have concrete goals to advocate for!

What is your story?

As a Greek, I have personally suffered from the non-inclusive way the Eurozone is being governed. But, having chosen to volunteer for causes that matter, I have developed the skills that shaped my personality and a strong belief in the European project, motivating me to work for change!

Who are you doing it for?

All European citizens, starting with the citizens of Eurozone, the Euroland citizens! They will have the means to be involved in an easy, modern and democratic way in the policies that impact their everyday lives. The project will be carried on in collaboration with the EU institutions.

What do you need from the Advocate Europe community?

Your ideas for a fair, inclusive Eurozone, based on the real needs of its citizens. Be part of the change!
