WOMEN TAKE THE FLOOR THANKS TO THE EUROPEAN CITIZENS' INITIATIVE!
ALDA is glad to share the information about the “Women for Europe and the Citizens' Initiative”. In 2011, with the support of the European Commission and in partnership with the Konstantinos Karamanlis Institute for Democracy and the Polish Robert Schuman Foundation, the Robert Schuman Foundation has launched an awareness raising campaign amongst women in Europe. “Women for Europe and the Citizens' Initiative” aims to raise women's awareness of this new tool - the European Citizens' Initiative. The partners are organising a conference on Wednesday 21st September 2011 at the European Parliament entitled "Women for Europe and the Citizens' Initiative".
Knowledge about the beginning and the background to the ECI, appreciating its scope, its limits and what is at stake, understanding European women’s expectations thanks to an exclusive study on key issues which affect them, debating the link between the ECI and fostering the women’s cause, notably via parity: its aim is to create real links between the European Citizens’ Initiative and parity.
